Hundreds of students from Utah Virtual Academy (UTVA) graduated Thursday, May 30, 2019. Some students met for the first time at this in person graduation.
The students were eager to see their peers and walk across the stage together. After years of getting to know each online or at other in person events, the students had one final celebration together.
Over 200 students who made up the graduating class of 2019 from UTVA, did their classwork primarily online. School officials say that online schools help break down the barriers whether it is distractions or schedules, and it allows them to focus on their work.
