Grad Night is a Cupertino High tradition—it is an all night party exclusively for graduating seniors. It is an awesome celebration of this milestone in their lives. Grad night takes place on the Cupertino High School campus and is supervised by parents.
Grad Night is a preferred choice to unsupervised parties where underage drinking may occur (it has been reported that parents sometimes provide alcohol – reminder, this is illegal). Grad Night gives our grads an extraordinary alternative to these types of parties and provides a safe and very fun alternative.

All of the ticket cost goes toward the party, but if students sign up late in the year, it will be carried over to next year’s party. Signing up early means that your ticket money goes directly to this year's party so your child can enjoy more fun and variety.
Activities differ from year to year. Recent Grad Night activities have included: Zipline, climbing wall, Segways, miniature golf, casino (chips provided, no cash), video arcade games, carnival games, karaoke, chess challenge, foosball, giant Twister, ping pong, air hockey, bocce ball, henna tattoos, caricature artists, photo booth, many photo opportunities. There is something for everyone!
Also included in the price of the ticket are unlimited food, soft drinks, as well as the chance to win a wide assortment of great prizes! There is no need to bring any money to the party. It’s all included.
The earlier we sell tickets, the earlier we can reserve the best activities. We would love to add more fun activities but it all depends on how many tickets we sell in time to reserve these items. If we do not receive the ticket money until the day of the party, we will not be able to add additional items and the money would be rolled over to next year. If you sign up early, you will get the benefit of your ticket money.
Cupertino has a curfew so we cannot allow students to be released without parental consent before 5AM. However, the parent who signed the registration form may come and check out their student at any time. Once the student has left the party they will not be allowed to return. There are no in and out privileges. Sorry, this holds true to those over 18 as well – this is according to our insurance policy and is non-negotiable.
Parent participation is not required for students to attend, however, Grad Night takes a lot of people so we very much welcome help. Many parents say that their student will not want them there. Please keep in mind that there is much work to be done prior to the party and also, work shifts during the party are not for the whole night.
Parents who work at the party are stationed in one place – there is plenty of room for their student to go and not even see them. If you are interested in helping at any level, please send a message to Tinograd@gmail.com.
The Grad Night Committee has been working nonstop to plan a great Grad Night Party for our seniors. In order to make sure we have all areas and activities covered for the night we need help from 100+ parent volunteers throughout the night.
