Sober Grad

 What is Sober Graduation


The Sober Graduation Program was developed by the California Highway Patrol in 1985 and operates under the umbrella of the Shasta County Chemical People, a non-profit organization.

The purpose of a Sober Graduation Party is to bring awareness to the Graduate and their Family of the risks of Alcohol and Drugs on High School Graduation Night.

Since the inception of the program there has not been a single Alcohol or Drug related death in Shasta County on Graduation Night.


Certificates sell for $100.00

With the purchase of each certificate the buyer will have their name entered into a drawing for one of three cash prizes. First Place $500.00, Second Place $250.00 and Third Place $150.00.

Certificate Sales are the largest revenue source for a Sober Graduation Party. Cost of the party [depending on the size of the graduating class] runs between $15,000 and $25,000.00.

Besides asking that each Senior be responsible to sell at least one Certificate, the Sober Graduation Committee helps cover costs by hosting several fundraisers throughout the year.


After being checked into the party by a parent or guardian, the Graduates will enjoy the biggest party of the year throughout the night and into the early morning the next day. The party is a lock in place type event chaperoned by U Prep parent volunteers.

Besides a vast menu of refreshments, they will be dancing to a DJ, participating in a game show, playing poker,lazer tag and much much more, including  a photo booth.
