About the Program 

This self-paced, flexible format is designed for adults 19 years of age and older to continue their academic career by earning their accredited high school diploma (not GED) and a career certificate in 6 - 18 months. Students who meet the enrollment criteria will receive a scholarship to cover the cost of the program. If selected for the program, students can expect to dedicate 8-10 hours per week to their coursework. 

Each student will get a personal academic coach, classes led by certified instructors, as well as career guidance and resources. Courses cover topics like English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Health. Adults can transfer previously earned high school credits and credits earned from GED.

In addition to an accredited high school diploma, successful graduates will also earn a certificate in one of ten high-demand career fields, such as Child Care and Education, Homeland Security, Food and Hospitality, Office Management, and Retail Customer Service.
