High School Diploma Program (HSDO)

An alternative to the GED high school equivalency,  HSDO is designed for students 19 years or older who have completed all of the required credits for graduation but failed the Alabama High School Graduation Exam (AHSGE), or students who have dropped out of the traditional high school setting after earning 10 credits but before earning all of the required credits.  After receiving an official transcript from the last Alabama high school attended, students will work the HSDO coordinator to determine eligibility and the best option available to them.  Students receive a traditional high school diploma after completing the HSDO program.

Career Pathways

Participants connect with a career counselor who will assist them in developing an educational plan to earn a workforce certification or academic credential. Students can take college-level classes and train for a career while earning a GED or HSD!

Career Pathways for Youth

This program targets youth in Butler, Crenshaw, and Pike Counties ages 16-24 that have dropped out of high school or are not successfully employed to help them complete their GED and acquire necessary employability skills.  Career training, post-secondary education, and life skills are a few of the opportunities available.  Incentives are offered for attaining goal specific achievements. 

English Language Learners

Students learn English skills using real-life situations, like going to the doctor’s office or filling out a job application, group interaction, and listening and speaking activities.

ESL classes equip students with the confidence and skills needed to better succeed in the workplace, community, and other educational/training programs. Instruction is provided in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar.
