Project Graduation was conceived in 1988 when there was a widespread concern in the community about the sale and use of illegal drugs and alcohol by Durham youth. Due to an enormous, sustained effort, it has become a wonderful tradition in Durham, attracting a majority of Durham Public School graduates each year. Few communities with similar programs can claim such a stellar record. The Project Graduation effort is the community at its best — people with diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds working closely together for the well-being of these young people.

    Interested in Durham Tech?

    A father's statement about Durham Tech:  His son participated in CCP and is graduating in 2019; he will finish college in 3 years, saving $75,000 in doing so!    "______ has been accepted by all of the NC schools he has applied to which includes NC State, UNC and Duke.  I honestly believe the success _____ has had at Durham Tech was a great contributor to these schools accepting him into their programs.  FYI, he has decided to go to Duke as part of the class of 2023."


    Nutrition Tip of the Day!

    Dairy foods such as milk, yogurt, and cheese, contain calcium, a nutrient that is essential for our bodies to not only create strong bones but also contract muscles properly. Take advantage of these foods especially when you are in the lunch line at school- you need three servings each day!


    Class of 2019, we have a new way for you to keep informed of such things as scholarships, testing dates, Jostens deliveries, and graduation info!  Text @knights-19 to the number 81010 to sign up for Remind messages throughout the year on upcoming events.
