Ball Tickets: What’s With the Price?

The season of meticulously searching for the perfect dress, cheesy proposals, and overpriced flower arrangements has begun. Ball is a timeless high school tradition that Seniors look forward to each year. The expectations for this quintessential high school experience are high, and throughout the years our class officers have not failed us. Beginning Freshman year, they have hosted countless fundraisers and carefully planned out every detail for Ball.


This year, Senior Ball tickets are priced at $125 and will go on sale beginning Monday, March 6th. While this price appears to be high, it is reasonable considering each factor. Senior Ball will take place in the Oakland Scottish Rite Center, a beautiful venue located alongside Lake Merritt.

This venue includes a plated dinner service, chocolate fondue fountain, casino games, photo booths, decorations, a DJ, and more. Seniors also will not have the burden of renting a limo or bus service because transportation is included. Senior Ball tickets are typically pricier than Junior Prom, and with everything the price accounts for, the officers hopes the Senior class understands the ticket pricing.


Ball is a highly anticipated event for many Seniors who have poured their money, effort, and time into crafting their perfect night. Don’t let the steeper price discourage you from enjoying your night and making the most out of the remainder of your high school experience! The class officers encourage Seniors to buy their tickets as soon as possible, and we hope that this special night exceeds all expectations.
