LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$LRN #Classof22–After two years of questions and distractions, the students from iQ Academy of California – Los Angeles (iQLA), an online public school serving K-12 students throughout the state, will celebrate its graduates with an in-person commencement ceremony this Monday. The graduation will take place at the Brea Community Center at 11AM. Details for the graduation can be found below or on iQLA’s Facebook page.
iQLA is proud to graduate approximately 83 students and has increased their graduation rate nearly 12% over the last year. The school also improved in ELA & Math proficiency during the pandemic where the state declined.
“I know some families are still struggling and last two years have not been easy. But for one day, let the students have their shining moment, the recognition of all their hard work, and a celebration of their future,” said iQLA Head of School Nicholas Stecken. “We’re so happy they made it to this point and look forward to seeing what they do next.”
Prior to the pandemic, students enrolled in virtual school for a number of reasons—some were looking to escape bullying, some may have fallen academically off track, and others were looking for an alternative to the traditional classroom setting.
Students at iQLA have reported they are attending colleges in- and out of California next year, including, Pepperdine University, CSU Fullerton, CSUN, CSU Dominguez Hills, Los Angeles City College LACC, and Grand Canyon University.
