Each year approximately 300 students receive their high school diploma from their home school through our Diploma Completion Program. The Diploma Completion Program is designed for students who wish to complete their high school diploma requirements through independent study and on-site academic instruction. Students also have the opportunity to prepare for Regents and RCT exams as well!

Eligibility for the Diploma Completion Program is determined on an individual basis. All placements in the Diploma Completion Program depend on a reviewed transcript by our program's Guidance Counselor.
