What is Project Graduation?
Project Graduation is an event that is held nationwide following high school graduation to provide graduating seniors an opportunity to celebrate their graduation with their peers in a safe, supervised, tobacco, substance and alcohol-free atmosphere. It began 32 years ago in Oxford Hills, Maine in response to 7 alcohol and other drug related deaths of teens in the graduation season of 1979. The event is organized and funded through the efforts of parents and is fully endorsed by the South Brunswick Board of Education. Project Graduation receives funding from the South Brunswick Municipal Alliance Against Substance Abuse and the Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (GCADA).

When is Project Graduation?
Project Graduation will be held this year on Tuesday, June 23, 2015 starting at 10:00pm and ending at 5:30am.

Where is the event?
Project Graduation has been held at the Funplex, in Mt. Laurel, NJ on graduation night. Bus transportation is provided to and from the high school. Students will board buses at SBHS around 10:00pm and return to SBHS at 5:30am where they will pick up their diplomas. 15-20 parents and teachers chaperone this event with police officers from Mt. Laurel & South Brunswick.


How much does it cost to attend?
It takes a great deal of fundraising to keep this event going each year. Your help is needed. All parents are invited to get involved – not just senior parents. The current cost to fund the event is almost $50,000! The success of this event is contingent upon the efforts of volunteers, parents and local community organizations that support major fundraising events and activities throughout the year. In the event we do not raise enough funds, there will be a charge for the event.
