Fourteen high school students from the Erie 1 BOCES Legal Academy graduated on Wednesday, June 8, 2016.  More than 50 family members and friends attended the ceremony held in the Marie Maday Theatre at Canisius College.


The BOCES high school students, who were enrolled in the New Vision Legal Academy senior honors class for the 2015-2016 academic year, received instruction at Canisius College while benefiting from the Jesuit college experience. Patricia Erickson, PhD, interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Robert Klump, Director of the Raichle Pre-Law Center, are the academic coordinators between Canisius and Erie 1 BOCES Legal Academy.

Four of the high school students will be freshmen at Canisius for the upcoming 2016-2017 academic year.
