Teen Upset About Not Graduating With Friends


(GRACE, ID) – A Grace teen is upset that he didn’t get to graduate alongside his friends Wednesday night.   Matt Van Buren was homeschooled through the Idaho Digital Virtual Academy, but still played sports at Grace High School. Van Buren’s parents say his picture was put in the yearbook and that he was billed as a student, but since he was officially enrolled through another school, Grace didn’t award him a diploma. School officials say Van Buren didn’t complete the coursework necessary to graduate from Grace.
