Three students graduated from the TEEN Virtual Academy. The TEEN Virtual Academy held its graduation ceremony on Sunday, Aug 2. There were 12 graduates in the 2019-20 school year with three students participating in the ceremony.
This was the fifth year of the virtual education program provided by USD 398, USD 408, USD 410 and USD 487. The goal is to provide an alternative education option for students to earn their high school diplomas in a personalized manner.
The program teachers and Director Lena Kleiner work alongside the students to motivate and encourage them throughout their journey to graduation.
“I am always so proud of our graduates. They all have different reasons for becoming a part of our program but are all striving for the same goal. I am glad that we are able to offer this program for those in our communities seeking an alternative education and the adult students wishing to complete their graduation requirements,” said Kleiner.
The TEEN Virtual Academy is a tuition-free virtual education program for Kansas students in grades 6-12 and adult learners.
