Students at AIOIC’s alternative high school, Takoda Prep, celebrated their graduation and years of hard work this June.
Ten students from Takoda Prep graduated this year. Each worked hard to complete assignments, study, earn credits, and plan for their future. Their next steps include going to college, enrolling in career training, and finding employment – all opportunities made possible with their high school diploma.
In addition to regular classroom instruction, students participated in a summer school program including planting a pollinator garden, designing and painting a mural, participated in cultural connection activities, and more. Throughout the academic school year, students visited Washington D.C., toured college campuses, created traditional Native art pieces, attended digital marketing and IT workshops, participated in the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women’s March, volunteered within their community, and more.
Congratulations to our graduates! Check out photos from the ceremony and celebration below:
