There was a special and emotional graduation ceremony at a Burnt Hills school on Thursday.

The Charlton School is a residential refuge for young women battling mental health challenges.
Through a therapeutic setting filled with art, music and equine therapy, these young women thrive.

This is the largest group of graduates in at least 20 years, Executive Director Alex Capo said.

NewsChannel 13’s Subrina Dhammi was the school’s first keynote speaker for commencement.
