Graduation Planning

Once you earn 17 credits within our program, you become a WAY Oasis High School Senior!

While you already have many resources within the school system, the WAY Oasis team takes a little extra time to intentionally support our seniors in preparing for life after graduation. We know how hard the last year can be and it is important for you to have a team dedicated to your personal and academic success. 

Your WAY Oasis Graduation Team is dedicated to focusing on your graduation and developing a plan for life after high school!
