This is the image for the news article titled A Flood Displaced Student Who Stayed and GraduatedLast year, more than 150 students enrolled in University View Academy because they were displaced from their brick-and-mortar school in Louisiana due to flooding. More than 135 of those students stayed and one of them was Cassidy Ainsworth. She was supposed to be a graduating senior in 2017 and she didn't want to miss that deadline. So she and her family found University View--and its completely online format--to be a blessing.

It was a challenging transition for Cassidy on so many levels, but she and her family credited the staff at University View with walking them through enrollment and getting used to a completely online school experience. Her younger sister even enrolled!

Cassidy started her freshmen year on time this Fall; she is pursuing her dreams of playing collegiate tennis and she found the academic focus and online format of University View prepared her for college by fine-tuning important, independent learning skills.

"Stories like Cassidy's are what our school is all about," said Superintendent Dr. Lonnie Luce. "We offer a normal school environment with high academic expectations and outcomes for all grades K-12. Let us help your family and friends."
