Welcome to our grad night experience!

Grad Night will be here before we know it!  College applications, essays, and the stress will all soon be behind us, and Grad Night will be here on May 23rd zing night with friends for the last time before going off to college or jobs? We are looking forward to an exciting night for the graduating class of 2024.   We have a big bash planned with food and prizes galore at an exciting location.

We ensure that your senior will be safe and have a terrific time.  Our plans are underway, and we are in need of donations and non-senior parent volunteers!  Please help us make this a memorable one!

 - The Grad Night Committee





The Safe and Sober Grad Night event immediately follows the graduation ceremony for all Oak Park High School Seniors.  It's the perfect capstone to the high school experience  and one last opportunity for seniors to gather with high school friends and classmates.    

What is Grad Night?

Grad Night is planned by the Grad Night Committee. It is not an official, school-sponsored event.  

Grad Night gives the graduating class an opportunity to celebrate without the use of any illegal substances. This tradition was started many years ago and is a safe and sober event on what statistically is a "HIGH RISK" night for our graduates. 

When is Grad Night?

Grad Night is held immediately following the Graduation Ceremony.  For the class of 2024, Graduation is on Thursday, May 23. Grad Night begins when the Seniors check in at the buses and are transported to a secret and secure location where they will celebrate all night.    


Please note: There is a short period of time after Graduation where you may take pictures.  There is no time for dinner.  Please plan to be on the bus and ready by 9:00 p.m.  If you want to have a celebratory meal with your graduating senior, please plan accordingly. 

Where is Grad Night?

The Grad Night committee selects the location, which is kept secret from the seniors until they arrive.   

Who can attend Grad Night?

Grad Night is open to all graduating students at Oak Park High School and Oak Park Independent School in good standing with no discipline issues.
