JL Patton Jr. Academic Center is a non-traditional, customized educational experience for students over-age and under-credited in comparison to their grade level peers. In the first year of Life Coaching, ‘Together We Thrive’ worked one-on-one with students and administrative staff to motivate students to a place of graduation with a high school diploma, career certification, college admission, or even college credit. ‘Together We Thrive’ celebrated over 40 of these students at a first ever graduation breakfast given by ‘Together We Thrive.’
