Young mom Savannah celebrated Mother’s Day and is preparing for her high school graduation – something she never thought she would be able to do while caring for her two-year-old son. Sadly, most teen parents have to drop out since they can’t be in a classroom all day.

But Savannah found our school’s flexible schedule and a special classroom for toddlers, she and other parenting teens can bring their babies to school. Students receive personalized instruction with parenting classes, core curriculum and access to free diapers, formula and other necessities.

Despite facing teen pregnancy, homelessness, losing her grandfather and depression, Savannah has persisted and worked tirelessly to achieve her dream of graduating high school. Her story is one of hope, courage and perseverance – an inspiration to other young parents who struggle to balance their education and parenting responsibilities.
