Mia Nevells remembers what attending Quakertown Community High School graduation felt like as a senior who wasn't allowed to walk on the big stage.

"It was gut-wrenching," said Mia, who attended the celebration at the PPL Center in Allentown to be there for her friends. Though Mia completed her law enforcement training at the Upper Bucks County Technical School, she was just shy of attaining her high school degree.

When she learned of The Academy at Quakertown, the Quakertown Community School District's new educational facility for at-risk 8th to 12th graders, she enrolled.

"I feel like such a weight has been lifted," she said, after receiving her diploma on September 7th from Assistant Superintendent Dr. Lisa Hoffman. "I just needed a little more time."
