Project Graduation Information

What is Project Graduation?


Every year Croatan High School and our community offer a safe way for our seniors to celebrate graduation. Project Graduation is an annual drug and alcohol-free celebration for graduated seniors. We will offer a free all-night celebration at some of the students’ favorite locations.  The Seniors will even walk away with some cash and prizes.

This event can only happen with the help and support of parents/guardians.  We will be organizing several fundraising events to cover the cost. We need all senior parents/guardians involved!

Project Graduation is an annual gift from the community and Croatan stakeholders to graduating seniors to safely celebrate their graduation. Please help us make this a memorable night.  We hope you will consider providing support in any way that you can.
