Attention Seniors and Juniors: PROM!

We are now ready to begin selling tickets for prom. Prom will be held on April 30, 2022 at the Ridglea Theater here in Fort Worth! The time for prom is from 7 PM to 11 PM. Tickets will be sold beginning on March 1. The prices are: $80 for one ticket and $130 for two tickets. We will have an awesome DJ and food trucks (for on site purchases) at the venue. The theme this year is "a Night at the Met Gala". We want to focus on fashion (as they do at the real Met Gala) so keep this in mind as you are planning outfits. We would love to see our students make their own outfits, go vintage thrift shopping, or find a beautiful dress or head turning suit that fits their personal style. If you have any questions, please contact Miss DeVaul at
