All Night Graduation Celebration

All Night Grad - What It Is

All Night Grad, is a State - and Fairfax County Public School System sanctioned event.  In fact, every school in the County, as well as in the entire State of Virginia participates in All Night Grad sanctioned celebrations.

The motivating factor behind All Night Grad is to provide our graduating seniors a safe, fun place to spend graduation night and celebrate with their fellow students and friends.  Since All Night Grad’s inception, no teen in the entire state of Virginia has been involved in a traffic fatality on graduation night! 

All Night Grad is a no alcohol, no drugs, parent and volunteer chaperoned event that takes places here at FHS the evening of graduation and lasts all night.

We feed them, we entertain them, we let them play games, they gamble, they sing, they dance, they get airbrush tattoos, and have lots and lots of fun with their friends.  They have worked hard to achieve this major milestone in their lives and we intend to give them a fitting venue to celebrate!

All Night Grad - What It Costs

Obviously all of this takes money.  The vast majority of the money must be raised through fundraising and donations from the community.  The total cost of this event in previous years was between $40,000 and  $50,000.  If you’ve ever been involved before - that number won’t shock you.  If this is your first senior - it seems a staggering sum.
