GRADUATE! is an innovative program which provides personalized educational experiences to high school senior dropouts by allowing them the opportunity to re-engage in non-traditional educational settings, to earn their high school diploma and to become job-ready.
Supports may include online or face-to-face courses, tutoring, mentoring, career and job coaching, housing, and mental health services. This initiative program is a collaborative effort between Johnston County Schools and Johnston County Industries' YES I CAN, INC. program.
The main goals of the program are to eliminate any barriers that exist for the students, provide the students with academic support, ensure the successful completion of the graduation requirements, and prepare the graduates for life after high school by providing opportunities that will enhance workforce preparedness. It is imperative that the GRADUATE! students have a personalized plan for success. Each student requires consistent attention, both academically and personally, that the GRADUATE! Program can provide.
