Grad Week

What is Grad Week?

Grad Week purpose is to celebrate the outstanding accomplishment of our nation’s high schools, students, teachers, school staff, school-based organizations, and our community parents, during high school graduation ceremonies across the country – using the theme “America Shines during Graduation Week.”

Why Does America Shine?

Without a strong and productive workforce, a country’s social climate and economic stability, means trouble for our elderly populations, our businesses, and to our country’s healthy families developmental growth.
