Mom goes back to school with son

Brook Dycus dropped out of high school in her junior year. “I had a baby at 15 – it got harder, trying to go to school, trying to work, and trying to take care of him.” Providing for her son has always been her top priority. That’s why she enrolled him at Christel House Academy West in Indianapolis. Walking him to school each day, Brook learned about Christel House DORS, the adult high school. She made the commitment to return to school and finish her classes. “That I could go to school with my son and at the same time earn my high school diploma was amazing,” says Brook. Now a graduate at 26, Brook now wants to go to college and is considering a career in criminal justice. “I was inspired,” she says proudly. “There were no more excuses.”
