Michael's Senior School Year Fees

My grandson Michael is a senior at the Forest Lake Academy high school, in Apopka, just North of Orlando

He is developmentally challenged and has been diagnosed with cognitive deficiencies which makes it difficult for him to operate in a normal environment

This is often labeled as a disability, but we prefer to think of him as needing to learn out-of-the-box strategies to cope with everyday life

We decided to move him out of the public school system when he was in middle school in Boynton Beach, and he successfully graduated from West Palm Beach Junior Academy  middle school in 2015

Mike's middle school progress outside the public school system was so spectacular that we decided to continue his Christian education in order to give him the best possible chance to develop as a young man and flourish until the end of his high school education

As he progressed through his first three years years at Forest Lake his development has continued to astound us to the point that we believe we must do everything we can to keep him at Forest Lake for his final year of high school education

Michael's capabilities are unfortunately limited and he will not be graduating with a high school diploma.  However, with a specially designed curriculum, he will be given a certificate of completion when he meets the goals that the school staff have set for his final year

Our objective when we moved him out of the public school system was that he become a self-confident, happy young man who is able to contribute to society.  With the support of the Forest Lake teachers he is being taught crucial life skills and being  prepared for the work place

Mike is a dorm student at Forest Lake, and the fees are high...he gets a couple of grants and some subsidies for his 2018/19 fees, but it is still very expensive

The goal for this funding campaign is, through your generosity, to help us with the total financial obligation that we must meet for the 2018/2019 academic year

Any contribution you can make to help us with Mike's school fees will be greatly appreciated, and may God bless you for your support

Thank you! Frances Jarvis
