Sonoma County Project Graduation was founded in 1987 in response to increasing drug and alcohol use among students on their graduation night – statistically the most dangerous night of the year for young people.  Inspired by an alcohol and drug free party thrown by Sonoma Valley High School, the very first Project Grad was organized for five Santa Rosa schools by a group that included CHP officers, MADD members, 4H representatives, and other community leaders.  Since then, the efforts have spread from the Santa Rosa district to eighteen schools across Sonoma County.

SRHS’s Project Graduation is an all-night party for the entire Santa Rosa High School 2016 Senior Class.


It is an amazing, fun, safe and sober way to celebrate on graduation night.  Santa Rosa High School campus is transformed into a variety of party themed areas to keep the fun going all night long. 

The party begins  right after the graduation ceremony and continues until 4am the next morning.

This event is made possible by the generous support and involvement from our Santa Rosa High School Parents, Community Organizations and Local Businesses.
