Five Keys Charter School Gives Students a Second Chance at Graduation
Public Charter School, September 24, 2018

Every June, in every town in every state throughout the country, high school graduations occur for many young adults. It’s a rite of passage. It’s what happens. A child starts on their educational path when they enter kindergarten, complete elementary school, advance to middle school, and then complete four years of high school. It all cumulates into a high school graduation ceremony with caps and gowns, pomp and circumstance, and family and friends. It’s a beautiful ritual.
But, what happens to those men and women whose educational journey was wrought with twists, turns, and obstacles, so that they never had the opportunity to earn their diploma? For the men and women who instead find themselves incarcerated? Fortunately, Five Keys Schools and Programs offers these men and women a second chance at finishing what they started.
