More than 90 students have finished the College & Career Readiness Program this year with more than 45 planning to attend the upcoming ceremony.

“College & Career Readiness programs offer students a flexible way to complete their high school credential and prepare for other college programs or the workplace,” says Patricia Smith, dean of the department.

Day, evening, and online classes are available through the College and Career Readiness department. Anyone interested in obtaining a High School Equivalency Diploma may choose from two convenient options: the traditional classroom setting or online classes.
