My Way HSC was founded in 2008 by Aynda Jackson, Donna Wilberg, Wendy Washington,
and Aminah Abdullah. These four mothers were determined to make sure the education their
children received was second to none! My Way HSC was birthed as a safe haven for scholastic
excellence. The home school as well as the children quickly outgrew the resources of the initial
program and by Fall 2009 My Way HSC had opened it's doors as a full time High School program
seeking accreditation. Accreditation was awarded in Fa.. 2011 and is up to date and current. My
Way HSC graduated its first class in 2012.
