Dominique was on the path to getting his diploma prior to attending Covenant House Academy; due to lack of availability of night classes he was sent off track and could not graduate from his former school. At this point Dominique came to Covenant House Academy where he had a difficult time adjusting to a new school and decided to leave. After leaving Covenant House, Dominique came to the realization that if he wanted to achieve his goals he needed to focus and make an effort to adapt to his new surroundings. He decided to return to Covenant House Academy and put forth the effort needed to succeed. Now Dominique is graduating in January 2011, he is enrolled at Oakland Community College and looks forward to studying graphic design and photography. Dominique feels that had he not come to Covenant House Academy he would not have put forth the commitment and effort needed to graduate and achieve his goals.
