Project Discovery encourages students to stay in and graduate high school and provides resources and tools for students to successfully make the transition to post-secondary education, such as community college, technical school, or a four-year college. Project Discovery is now being offered in grades 10 – 12 at Edison, Hayfield, Mount Vernon, Robinson and West Potomac High Schools.

Project Discovery believes that hardworking, meritorious students should not be deprived of an opportunity to attend college simply because of a lack of funding. Our vision is to see that every student graduates from high school and every student who has the desire and demonstrates the ability, is able to attend post-secondary education.
