The largest class in DORS five-year history graduated in June. 84 adult students walked across the stage and earned their high school diplomas. Hundreds packed the Christel House Academy South facilities to see the ceremony. A special rose ceremony was added this year to allow students to recognize the friends and family members that supported their return to high school to earn their diploma.
Many of the graduates plan to continue their education. Christel House will be there to support them. “That’s the incredible part about our program. We do have that contact with them, for five years after graduation,” says Emily Masengale, Principal of DORS. “We’re really helping to make that transformational change. That helps us to see them all the way to the finish line.”
