I have two polygons: 1) successfulheights and 2) clipArea. I have used the clip function to remove the unwanted successfulheights. Though, there are features that have been clipped in half and those are now invalid for my project. Is there a parameter to set, "if a feature does not completely lay within the overlay layer, remove it"?

It is better to use the Extract by location tool instead of the Clip tool to extract only those polygons that fall completely within the boundary polygon. Extract by location has the option are within which does what you want.
