SOS Children’s Villages Illinois is proud to announce the academic success of children in our care. Congratulations to the Class of 2015!
The SOS Village Class of 2015 includes:
- Four high school graduates
- Ten eighth grade graduates
- Eight kindergarten graduates
Nationally, only fifty percent of children in foster care graduate from high school. SOS Children’s Villages Illinois consistently has a one hundred percent high school graduation rate. This is no accident, it’s part of the SOS Difference. The hard work and constant support of our full-time, professional Foster Parents and staff at the SOS Villages make it possible for our children to succeed.
