A 17-year-old musician has been expelled from her Christian high school over her performances at bars and nightclubs that serve alcohol.

Baily Griggs says she was kicked out of Cramerton Christian Academy in Gastonia, North Carolina, before her senior year because of her presence at places where ‘drugs and alcohol are present,’ such as ‘nightclubs or bars.’

The school reportedly informed her mom Jennifer of the decision via email.


‘When you look at the handbook and the way it’s written, it says that she’s not to be gathering in places where there’s alcohol and drugs,’ Jennifer told WRAL News.

‘She’s not gathering, she’s doing her job.’

Baily said attending the venues is part of her musical career, and that she does not drink when she attends the venues as she is underage.

Her mom Jennifer argued that many of the school’s students post images attending concerts where there is alcohol and have not been expelled.

‘The other kids in the schools, there’s post, many, many posts of them attending music concerts,’ Jennifer said.

‘If anyone knows, when you go to those concerts, you’re surrounded by alcohol.’

Moreover, Jennifer argued that many restaurants also serve alcohol.

Cramerton Christian Academy, however, has stood by its decision, saying they have very high standards and does not enroll students who do not meet them.

DailyMail.com has reached out to the school for comment on this story.

Baily has been performing since the age of 10 and was discovered by Dolly Parton’s producer Kent Wells.

She had been homeschooled while enrolled at Cramerton but enrolled in the homeschool bridge program, which allowed her to participate in school sports and other activities.
