Juniors! Start Your Graduation Project Early!

The Graduation Project is a school board approved graduation requirement for all students in Buncombe County.  The process begins with a proposal.  After approval, the process continues with a research paper, a community-based project of 10 hours minimum, a presentation to a panel of community members, and a portfolio compiling all of the work from the whole process.

 The Graduation Project Committee recognizes that students may want to alleviate the burden of having to complete the project in a compact amount of time and allows juniors to begin the proposal and community project hours early on an independent basis.  Juniors may also begin their papers within the research paper component of English III, leaving only the portfolio and presentation components for the senior year.

The Early Start packet is very detailed and self-explanatory.  The first step is to access the packet and read the directions.  After students are familiar with the directions, they may make an appointment with a Graduation Project Committee member or a Media Coordinator to discuss their ideas for proposals.
