Project Graduation

History

Project Graduation emerged in the Oxford Hills area (Paris/Norway) of Maine in 1980 as a result of community energies empowered through a State initiative. It has long been recognized as a prototype for the nation, helping to protect the lives of graduating seniors in all states. Project Graduation is a program offered by many high schools in the United States in which organized, adult-supervised activities are offered as part of the post-graduation party. Events often last through the night and are held in hotels or community centers.
What is Project Graduation? Project Graduation is an all-night drug and alcohol-free celebration for graduating seniors that includes sports, games, activities, food, entertainment, music and gifts for each student. This event is always held the same night as the commencement ceremony and is chaperoned by parent and faculty volunteers.
 
How does Project Graduation "work"? It takes a great deal of fundraising to keep this event going each year for our senior class. Typically, junior class parents take responsibility for the event, however, all parents are invited to get involved. We'd like to give the parents of our seniors time to focus on their son or daughter's last year. The success of this event is contingent upon the efforts of volunteers, parents and local community organizations.
