Tristen was performing perfectly in a traditional high school setting. That is, until he moved to a new town for his senior year.

“The school literally gave me panic attacks the moment I walked in. It was so much bigger than any school I’d ever been too,” he said. “Finishing high school was my biggest challenge. I knew I could do it, and I wanted to prove it to myself.”

Tristen called school counselors, hoping they could give him some information about summer school. They told Tristen about the opportunity to earn a high school diploma online with Graduation Alliance.

“I just want to be successful enough that life comes easier, and happiness is never hard to find,” Tristen said. “I mean, I have my high school diploma! Everything is different. That chapter of my life finally closed, and now I feel I can catch any of my dreams.”
