Join us in celebrating the Progressive Education Program's (PEP) Class of 2020 in a virtual graduation ceremony held at 6:30 p.m. on the evening of May 29. The program will be available on the PEP website as well as premiered on the Buncombe County Schools district Facebook page.

At PEP, we aim to help students realize their potential and achieve their greatest level of independence. That is why it is our joy to present and honor our 2020 graduates. The persevering, never-quit attitudes of these young men and women have ensured their success and prepared them for their next-steps in life.

Congratulations, Class of 2020!
