Welcome!


Thank you for visiting the official website for Milton High School Project Graduation!

We are parents and guardians of high school seniors in Milton, Vermont. Many volunteers, countless hours, and the generosity of our community members and local businesses combine to provide a fabulous, wonderful, fantastic, awesome, and fun SUBSTANCE-FREE event for our seniors the evening of graduation – June 11, 2016. This event is offered to all Seniors FREE of charge.

Now that you’re here, please look around and discover how you can help out – from joining a committee to simply making a donation – all support is greatly appreciated! Join us on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30-8 pm in the Milton Public Library for our monthly meetings. Check out the calendar for upcoming events.

What is Project Graduation?

The concept of Project Graduation started over thirty years ago in Maine, after seven students lost their lives on graduation night in an alcohol/drug-related accident.

On the night of Graduation graduates often “party hop” in their efforts to celebrate with as many classmates as possible. Project Graduation is an all-night, substance-free celebration that provides a fun and safe alternative to party hopping.

This adult supervised event is FREE to all graduating seniors. It is the last social event of high school where the seniors can be with their classmates, have a great time and, most importantly, a safe night.

So, we begin as soon as one graduating class ends! That is to say, it is nearly a 12-month effort to plan, coordinate, and raise funds to make it all happen. We need YOU! There are many ways to help – from heading a committee, to helping out at sporting events, to sharing your creative ideas. We have something for everyone. Donations are always welcome!!

Why Participate?

Everyone wins! Seniors are treated to evening of entertainment and fun surprises. Parents can relax a bit, knowing their kids are having a good time in a safe environment. Volunteers win by participating in a successful event for such a worthwhile cause. Businesses gain community respect and support through their generosity to Project Graduation.

Project Graduation Events!

This year seniors will be checking in at the High School on the evening of Saturday June 14th. After registering at Milton High School we will depart for Spare Time Bowling for fun activities, super surprises and of course snacks will be enjoyed by all.  Our seniors will return to Milton High School for a full night of fun and surprises before saying final goodbyes as classmates early morning on Sunday June 15th. Our goal is to make this an event they will always remember, and to keep each senior safe on their graduation night!
