Center Grove and Clark-Pleasant next week will celebrate the graduation of students who almost didn’t finish high school.

On Thursday, 26 students will graduate from the Center Grove and Clark-Pleasant alternative academies, which the districts created for students who weren’t succeeding in traditional high school courses.

Along with finishing high school, some of the students also were dealing with homelessness, had become parents or were unable to focus in class or get help with assignments.

Three of this month’s graduates shared their stories. None is certain what comes next for them and whether that involves college or a job, but this week they’re celebrating receiving their diplomas.
