SMA Senior Prom

18 May 2022

5:30pm - 10:30pm


All students attending the prom must spend the half-day on campus to be eligible to attend.  Seniors attending prom will be eligible to sign out at advisory.

Underclassmen who are attending the prom as a guest of a senior may only leave campus early with a note from a parent or guardian, but must attend for at least half the day to attend the prom.


There will be NO parking at the Yacht Club for any of our guests.  If you are being dropped off by a parent, limo, or some other ride service, you must be dropped off no later than 6pm, and your ride MUST be ready to pick you up at the Yacht Club at 10pm sharp.

If you are driving yourself to the event, you should plan on arriving at SMA no later than 5pm so that you can ride with the trolleys to the Yacht Club at 5:30pm.  If you are late for the trolleys, there will not be transport for you to the boat, and you will miss the prom.  The trolleys will return us to SMA, where you will be able to retrieve your vehicles, by approximately 10:30pm.

Just a reminder that this is a school event, and that no weapons or contraband are permitted.  Additionally, security at the boat will prevent you from boarding if you are in possession of any materials deemed inappropriate for the event by the yacht service.


Senior students attending the prom will be permitted to arrive on campus Thursday at approximately 12:00pm, and partake in brunch with their senior class.  During and after brunch, students are encouraged to finalize their business at SMA, securing signatures and turning in their clearance forms for graduation.
