“High school students can learn about the Luna advantage and see whether it might be the right fit for them,” said Moses Marquez, director of admissions and recruitment at Luna. “We know they have choices to make when it comes to life after high school graduation, and we want to help them explore their options. It’s an exciting time for them, and we at Luna are excited for their future.”
