Home-Schoolers Dance the Night Away at Prom in Albemarle County
More than 250 central Virginia home-schoolers took it back to the roaring ’20s for their own prom in Albemarle County Friday night.
The theme of this year's Virginia home school prom at Ash Lawn-Highland was "An Evening at the Gatsbys.” The first floor featured a food and drink station as well as a photo booth.
Guests got to dance with their friends on the second floor.
“Prom is awesome. It's important. It's special It's definitely a memory that will last a lifetime. It's something normally high schoolers don't get, but through the work of the team, we got to plan this and just have a prom like other kids do,” said prom committee teen leader Katie Eagle.
Organizers did crown a prom king and queen at the event. The students say it was great to experience this important milestone in their lives.
