The Thirteenth Grade program is for the recently indpendent. Although designed as a sequel to Keystones for groups to continue to working together past Keystones completion, existing affinity groups can create their own community at any time.

Students shape the agenda to learn new skills as their circumstances dictate. Meanwhile, continuing the relationship with their friends as their lives unfold.
