Class of 2017 Graduation Ceremony Review

Congratulations to the Class of 2017! In the past several weeks, hundreds of students in eight different counties walked across the stage to receive their high school diploma at graduation. In addition, many more students will be completing their remaining requirements over the summer months.

Each one of these students put in the hard work and dedication to achieve this tremendous goal. The window of opportunity is now open for these students; whether that be higher education, career training, military, or entering the workforce. We encourage our graduates to achieve their career goals and fulfill all of their dreams.

“As I watched the graduates walk across the stage,
I was overcome with so much happiness and joy,” said Cheri Humes, Duval County Enrollment Coordinator. “These students worked so hard and I know their future is going to be filled with greatness!”

“Nothing can stand in the way of you accomplishing a goal if you dedicate the time to perfecting your craft,” Andrew Post, Superintendent of Schools says. “Be patient but persistent in achieving that goal.”

Our students make a great impact on Catapult Academy staff and we expect great things from all of our graduates.

Congratulations and good luck to the Class of 2017. Your success is our success.
