Much like high school athletes making their college decisions, five scholars set up in front of a Paramount Panthers backdrop and signed paperwork declaring their high school commitments for the next four years.
Commitment letters included scholars’ interests for colleges to attend and degree programs to study after their four years of high school. The enrollment process for scholars’ high schools was required and parents were invited to participate with their scholars.
Each scholar is set to receive some new high school merchandise to fire up school spirit for their new schools.
The celebration was a first for Paramount Charter Academy. The school plans to continue the tradition, hoping to foster relationships with local high school principals, even planning to invite them in future years to celebrate the transition.
