CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Several high school dropouts earned their diplomas on Thursday.

Twenty-seven graduates of the Magic Johnson Bridgescape Academy donned a cap and gown, from both Cincinnati locations.

The academy is an alternative school that provides students who have dropped out or are at-risk of dropping out, with a free way to complete their education.

More than one million students drop out each year across the country.
