(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Taylion Virtual Academy will celebrate the end of its first school year by awarding high school diplomas to two seniors on Tuesday, June 21 at a 6 p.m. graduation ceremony at the Heritage House, 796 N. D Street, San Bernardino.

Taylion Virtual Academy will give special honor to graduates Isabella Medina and Madeline Walker. Isabella will attend Crafton Hills College in the fall to study to be an ultrasound technician, and Madeline will attend San Bernardino Valley College in the fall, and is considering majors in health care or education.

“Our first graduates have reached this accomplishment of completing their education, even though both have already encountered some difficult situations in their young lives,” said Tom Cass, who taught both girls their senior year. “They are now moving on to community college, and no doubt will achieve great things.”

The guest speaker for Taylion’s first graduation ceremony is Kim Carter, founder of the non-profit organization Time for Change.

“I am so excited to be chosen as Taylion Virtual Academy’s first graduation speaker,” Carter said. “I want to inspire the graduates to be the best they can become by taking every opportunity that comes their way, and by turning any challenges they face into stepping stones to success.”

Taylion Virtual Academy offers independent study, home schooling and online education, with all students working at their own pace. For many students, the free public charter school is an opportunity to either catch up and graduate with classmates at a traditional high school, or to graduate early from Taylion and move onto college or full-time employment before others their age.

Taylion Virtual Academy, a free public charter school, offers an option for families who wish to be directly involved in their children’s education, for teens who seek an accelerated schedule to begin college early, and for teens needing to catch up on credits to graduate with their classmates.
