Christian liked his neighborhood high school for the most part, but sometimes found himself distracted by the other students. In his senior year, Christian’s life circumstances changed, and his girlfriend gave birth to their child. He left school to work and support his family, but came to realize that he needed to continue his education to get a better job. He got in touch with ASD staff and was referred to the Back on Track program to finish up his remaining credits. Christian liked how the program let him focus specifically on the credits he needed. Last October, he completed his high school diploma and was able to walk across the stage at AVAIL’s graduation in May. Christian is now applying to technical schools to pursue a career as a mechanic or carpenter.
