YHS has 85 graduates from American Dream Academy

Yuma High School had more than 85 participants graduate from the school’s first Arizona State University American Dream Academy on Nov. 15, 2018.

Students and parents at YHS received a certificate of completion for an eight-week course.

“It was a true pleasure and an honor working with and serving Yuma High School families, students, and administration,” ASU instructor Laura Corr said. “We hope to continue our journey with new parents and students for many years to come.”

The American Dream Academy is a program designed to provide families with the tools needed to empower students, parents and teachers to transform expectations and learning methods, so that academic potential is maximized. Graduation from the program requires 100 percent involvement of both parents and students.
