Provost Academy Ohio’s first of many graduation ceremonies was held on Saturday, June 14th in Columbus, Ohio. There were five Provost Academy Ohio seniors who received their High School Diploma. Of the five graduates, two participated in the commencement ceremony; Ava Lanning and Heather Tenkman (pictured below, with Ava in the left two photos and Heather in the right two photos). Their hard work and dedication during their last year as High School students is unmatched and the Provost Academy Ohio teachers and staff could not be more proud. We want to take a moment to recognize all five students and congratulate them on their accomplishments and wish them continued success in their next phase of life.

One of the great things about being a student at Provost Academy is that you can "go" to school anywhere that you can access the internet. Just pack up your laptop and head to a park bench, turn on your mobile wi-fi device, and you're "going" to school! So, we are asking you - where do you Provost? Send us a picture of where you like to do your schoolwork (along with a short sentence telling us why) and receive a special surprise in the mail!

All students who are planning to attend college or a technical school after graduation:

The Ohio Counsil of Community Schools offers multiple scholarships to support students who have attended an Ohio charter school and who wish to further their education after high school.
