That’s great news, much needed good news in harsh times. I am so happy for you and your family, WindyHill63!

She must be feeling very good about the accomplishment, too. Give her a few weeks to settle into the fact that she’s free of high school and then talk about her future plans. Everyone needs a little break after such things. It sounds like she’s doing really well. :clap:

Congratulations, no wonder you’re proud.

Congratulations and way to go, Allie!

So Allie is thinking of going to college now… Her grades are not really good enough for Messiah college, but she can start out at the local community college which actually does have an art program that looks pretty good. They also have a 2-4 program in art designed for transferring into a 4 year college.

I remember being disappointed when my grades didn’t get me into the college I thought I wanted to attend right out of highschool.
But, community college and online schools are now extremely reputable in my field of work. In fact, most of my colleagues have or currently are taking courses that way.
It takes a some planning ahead, but transferring credits to a traditional university and completing a degree that way saves a lot of money.

I would say that you and your family can be extremely proud that she is looking forward to college. Even if she doesn’t get her first pick, there are so many equally good options that no single school (or class) really matters in the long run!

So we are planning on visiting the community college next week
