Madison and Emma are both seniors at the school, which meets at the Alabama Full Gospel Fellowship Church on Route 63 in Shelby.

There are three seniors in this year’s class at the school and they all live in the Medina area. There will be a small graduation ceremony on June 11 at the church for the three students and their families.

“It was a great place for me,” Bale said. “It gave me the one-on-one with teachers. Everybody is great there.”
