On Wednesday, May 31, 2023, Options celebrated the graduating class of 2023 at our annual graduation ceremony. The Options staff served 47 seniors during this school year. Seven of our seniors chose to graduate early. That choice provided an opportunity such as joining the Marines or starting an apprenticeship for a trade. Other seniors chose different pathways to complete their high school graduation requirements. We had seven individuals who went to a University Campus for courses. These seven individuals earned a total of 106 credits towards their bachelors degrees. We also had 13 seniors who attended a technical college. These seniors came away with 222 credits to support their future career. Those credits included four students who had a technical college certificate and three students who completed their technical diploma. All are well on their way to completing an Associate Degree. We are here to celebrate all of our graduating seniors. No matter where your life path takes you Boot camp, a new career, technical college, or university, please know that we at Options Virtual Charter School are proud to have been a part of your last year in high school. We enjoyed working with you and expect great things for your future. Congratulations class of 2023! We are so proud of you and wish you the best of luck!
