Our scholars are dual enrolled in college classes at area colleges. These classes are held on our campus. We offer 20 different college classes to our scholars in which they may earn up to 18 credit hours towards a college degree.
Every scholar is equipped with the tools to achieve this goal. After high school graduation, our scholars are visited by our Alumni Director to ensure and assist in their college journey and even attend their college graduation. We are here for you!
Our scholars learn through active participation in various studies. We teach not only educational minds, but grow healthy minds through kinesthetic learning , emotional health, constructive self reflection, and health education.
