  • In the United States, a student drops out of college every 12 seconds.  

  • Project Launch (PL) was established in 2012 to help local students and their families make a successful transition from high school to post-secondary learning.

  • PL is working hard to make sure that our local students have all the support they need to succeed.

  • PL is free and open to any recent Deer Isle-Stonington high school graduate who wants to further their education after high school.

  • To date, more than 120 students have enrolled in PL.  Over 65% of them are the first in their family to attend college.
