Cherimee's Story

Eastside Academy students are sometimes asked to give their story in front of the community to share the impact that this school has had in their lives.

In the words of Cherimee, recent graduate from Eastside Academy, "At first I was nervous, but I knew from the very beginning that this school was going to work for me. It had a lot of structure, and I knew I needed that. I like being held accountable through the Recovery Program. I like that the school is small, because I get a lot of one-on-one help. I love the staff at EA, they are all really easy to talk to."
