Project Graduation Mission

Since 1989, parent volunteers and community members have produced the Project Graduation celebration for Acton-Boxborough (AB) graduating seniors. Project Graduation is an all-night, alcohol and drug-free party exclusively for graduating seniors at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (ABRHS). The event is held on graduation night from 10pm to 5am at ABRHS in Acton, Massachusetts. Each year, the Project Graduation committeee chooses a theme for the party. On graduation day, volunteers decorate the high school. Before the party starts, we open the doors for the community to see the decorations. Project Graduation needs hundreds of volunteers to be successful. Please join us.

Project Graduation is always a huge success, with over 90% of the senior class attending. The night features live entertainment, arcade games, psychics, crafts, a casino, lots of food, games and much more. The event is held at the high school in a completely transformed surprise theme that rivals a Broadway set! The theme is kept secret for the for the seniors until they arrive at the school for the event at 9:30pm on graduation night. The community is invited to attend an open house from 8:00-9:00pm before the party.
