Gateway allows high school students to graduate with college degree


DECATUR—The Gateway to Graduation Academy held commencement exercises recently for six of its students who attended high school and college simultaneously. 

Gateway, a unique collaboration between Georgia Perimeter College and DeKalb Public Schools, re-channels high school dropouts and other students who aren’t thriving in traditional high schools. The program offers them a chance to attain a high school diploma and accrue college credit at the same time.
