The national high school graduate rate has hit a record high at 81.4 percent, but a number of students and communities must be reached to continue that growth. Today’s global economy demands a more educated workforce, requiring more students to graduate from high school prepared for post-secondary education and career.Public media is helping local communities keep more students on the path to a high school diploma, college & successful careers.WSKG is a proud community hub station of American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen! Check back often for local Education news reports, media produced by teens from our area, and opportunities to get involved!

'American Graduates' Honored at Corning High School Learning Center

Congratulations to the Class of 2016!

Tomorrow, three more students from WSKG's American Graduate project will walk up to the podium and receive their high school diploma. Yay! We extend our congratulations to these three and all the student participants in our media production partnership with Corning-Painted Post High School Learning Center. Since the premiere of their thoughtful videos, nine students have officially joined the club we spend so much time reflecting on: They are American Graduates!
