Success After Milestones

Milestones’ Alumni Spotlight

A handful of graduates from the Milestones’ Class of 2016 came back this summer to participate in a Speaker Series for high school students. Alumni guest speakers created and presented PowerPoint presentations to current students, sharing the inside scoop on life after Milestones and how Milestones has helped prepare them for what came next. These former students shared that their time at Milestones prepared them with many skills, including: time management, self advocating for extra help, homework planning, social interactions, and navigating the community – just to name a few!

Carsten Jonas

We take great pride in the accomplishments of our students, both past and present. Every student has a journey here at Milestones and sometimes it comes to an end as their growth and progress continue onwards. We are so proud to announce that Carsten Jonas has moved on from Milestones and back to his public school district. Carsten came to Milestones in elementary school. He is a spirited student who has grown tremendously over his 7 years at Milestones. With his steady determination, combined with consistent dedication and support from staff, Carsten fulfilled his wish to reintegrate back into his home public school district, where he will finish his high school career. Although he is greatly missed, we wish him well in his future success!
