You've never ever had a member of your post who has graduated from high school?! My experience must be pretty limited; I've
never before encountered a post situation in which there are so many high school dropouts. Or do you mean that your post
members always leave the post before graduating from high school?
Maybe the fact that you lose most of your members betwen 10th and 11th grades indicates that there's a natural break there. It
might be that people who are in 11th grade or higher have largely different interests from those who are in 10th grade or lower
(which is what B-P wrote about). In that case, it might be a good idea to have separate programs for those who have not yet
completed 10th grade and for those who have, which is what I'm suggesting. Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, though.
BTW, I like your post's web pages. Out of curiosity, how do the ranks (like E/Col.) work in Military Exploring? Do you have set
