Kevin'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 Kevin, recent graduate from Eastside Academy, "Before Eastside Academy, college wasn't even an option. I just wanted to graduate high school. Now, I've attended Running Start at Bellevue College for two years, and I'm graduating this June."

For the rest of Kevin's story, please watch the video below.
