  • Junior Dues

    As the traditional host of the Prom, members of the Junior Class are responsible for the majority of the cost of the Prom. As a result, Juniors are asked to pay dues ($70).

    What does Junior Dues Pay for?  Most of the cost of Prom your Junior Year (ticket sales make up the rest).  Paying Junior Dues also makes you eligible to purchase discounted Prom Tickets BOTH Junior and Senior Year ($20 as opposed to $105 for those who don't pay dues). Discounted admission to the Homecoming Dance ($10 instead of $20 for those who don't pay Junior Dues).  


    Payment will be made using the MyPayments Plus System. (www.mypaymentsplus.com).

  • NGHS Prom FAQ

    When is Prom 2023?  Prom 2022 will be Saturday, May 6 at the Gas South District in Duluth.  

    Why do I have to pay Junior Dues?  Junior Dues pay for some of the cost of producing the Prom.  We use Junior Dues as the primary fundraising tool for Prom--which keeps the ticket price low for everyone who pays their class dues ($20 as opposed to $105 for those who don't pay dues).  


    I transferred to NGHS during my Senior Year. Do I have to pay Junior Dues? Since Junior Dues pays for part of the prom Junior and Senior Year, Senior Transfer students are asked to pay 1/2 of the original fee--before all the late fees were added in.

    I really want to come to the Prom but I can't afford it. What should I do? At NGHS, we want everyone to be able to enjoy the Prom. Contact your guidance counselor ASAP to discuss some options.

    I am technically classified as a Sophomore but I earned enough credit for Junior status after Fall Semester and I will graduate at the end of next year. Can I come to the Prom? Yes. Just have your guidance counselor e-mail Mr. Stewart to let him know of your change in status. 

    Do I have to pay more if my date doesn't go to NGHS? Date tickets are $40.  

    Do I have to pay more if my date is a freshman or sophomore at NGHS? Date tickets are $40

    Is it OK to come to the Prom solo? In 2022, 75% of the people who purchased tickets did so with groups of friends instead of a specific date!

    Is there a dress code for the Prom? Yes. This is a formal event and the attire should reflect the formality of the event.

    Will there be chaperones at the Prom? Absolutely. There is a very visible adult presence at the Prom. In 2021, this included the following: 6 uniformed Gwinnett Police Officers, 2 School Resource Officers, 30 adult chaperones, 9 NGHS administrators, and over 120 NGHS teachers/staff.

    Will food be available at the Prom? YES! 

    I'm picking my child up after the Prom, what time should I be there? The prom is over at 11:00pm. Please arrive no later than 11:00pm.

    Does North Gwinnett sponsor any sort of after prom function? No. Many families host after-parties for their student but NGHS does not sponsor an after party.

    When is next year's Prom?  PROM 2024 (May 4), PROM 2025 (May 3)
