Do you know someone between 16 and 19 years old who dropped out of school but now wants to earn their high school diploma?
There’s a brand new program to help them earn that degree. EAA High School Diploma Completion Program. It’s offered by the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan and provides young people a second chance to finish high school by combining work in an EAA classroom two afternoons a week with online classes.
Students will attend an EAA high school from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. twice a week while taking online classes from home. If needed, Netbooks and access to the Internet will be provided to eligible students.
To sign up, just show up at any EAA high school between 1:00 and 2:30 p.m. any day from now through Wednesday, October 3. Those six high schools are Denby, Southeastern, Pershing, Mumford, Ford and Central. If they have a transcript or an old report card, they should bring it along to help pick the right courses. It’s never too late to get a new start. Young people can get a new start on a high school degree at an EAA high school. For more information go online to enrolleaa.org.
