For the past two years, through the American Graduate program WFSU has been working with students at the Success Academy at Ghazvini Learning Center. The Success Academy is a blended learning curriculum where students work online and with a teacher to catch up and ensure graduation.

Schools like the Success Academy provide a necessary alternative for some students to find a path to graduation. Students have the opportunity to participate in a leadership program and participate in monthly professional networking lunches to learn from community leaders about future career possibilities. In May of 2013, thirty-two students earned a high school diploma through this program.
