Wayfinder Schools teacher Erica Gates celebrates three Passages students who graduated June 14 in Camden. Aimee Barnstein, Dakota Sprague and Ashley Bartlett received their high school diplomas while parenting young children.

Founded in 1994 by Wayfinder Schools, Passages is a home-based high school degree program for young parents, age 14 to 20, who live in Knox, Lincoln, Waldo, Washington, Cumberland, Androscoggin and Sagadahoc counties and whose education was derailed by early parenthood.
