The Pomp and Circumstance Will Continue: Destinations Career Academy of Oregon and Insight School of Oregon-Painted Hills Will Celebrate 2020 Graduates with Online Commencement Ceremony
PRINEVILLE, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Destinations Career Academy of Oregon (ORDCA) and Insight School of Oregon-Painted Hills (ISOR-PH), two online public school serving students in grades 9-12 and 7-12 respectively throughout the state for the last several years, will cap off their school year by celebrating the Class of 2020 in a combined online commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 6 at 3:00 p.m.
This year, ORDCA, an online school dedicated to providing students with career-focused classes, and ISOR-PH, a school focused on rebuilding strong academic foundations, will graduate over 70 students with 5 students graduating with Career and Readiness Education (CRE) distinctions.
Collectively, the school reports having students that plan to attend college, enroll in trade school, join the military or take time to travel.
“We all know that school has changed dramatically because of the coronavirus, and it’s been a very challenging year for all Oregon students,” said ORDCA and ISOR-PH Head of School Sonimar Villegas. “Normally, we look forward to giving our online students an in-person graduation, but, given the times, we are excited for the opportunity to do what’s right and celebrate with them online.”
ORDCA is proud to have a student speaking at the ceremony about her experience at the school. Shanna Lindh will be graduating with a 3.88 GPA and is second in her class. Shanna will attend Southwestern Oregon Community College in Coos Bay with a focus in accounting and bookkeeping. Sonimar and Shanna are available for media inquiries.
Students enroll in virtual school for a number of reasons, including those looking for a safer learning environment free from bullying, those looking to get back on track academically, or those looking for an alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar classroom setting. ORDCA and ISOR-PH students access a robust online curriculum in the core subjects and a host of electives and attend live virtual classes every day taught by state-certified teachers.
