Learning Center Enrollment

ACCORDING TO A 2011 REPORT BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE, 90% OF AMERICANS HAVE AT LEAST A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA.  TODAY, A DIPLOMA IS A VIRTUAL NECESSITY FOR SUCCESS.  THOSE WHO FAIL TO RECEIVE A HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA ARE QUALIFIED FOR ONLY 12% OF AVAILABLE JOBS.  BESIDES BEING A REQUIREMENT FOR MOST COLLEGE ADMISSIONS AND MANY JOBS, A HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION HAS A POSITIVE EFFECT ON SOCIETY AS A WHOLE. THE USD 211 LEARNING CENTER IS FOR ADULTS WHO WANT TO SUCCEED IN COMPLETING A NORTON HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA. NOW IN ITS SIXTH YEAR OF OPERATION, THE LEARNING CENTER OFFERS A WHOLE NEW WAY OF LEARNING.  IN A USER-FRIENDLY SETTING, STUDENTS CAN LEARN WHILE STILL MEETING JOB, FAMILY, AND COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITIES. TEACHERS ARE CARING INDIVIDUALS WHO BELIEVE THAT SUCCESS IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS AND WHO KNOW HOW TO HELP ADULTS LEARN AND SUCCEED IN THEIR STUDIES. THEY WILL WORK WITH STUDENTS ONE-ON-ONE, PROVIDING INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION WHEN APPROPRIATE.  ENROLLMENT IS UNDERWAY NOW AT THE 211 LEARNING CENTER.  ANY NON-GRADUATE 18 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER WHOSE CLASS HAS ALREADY GRADUATED AND WHO NEEDS A DIPLOMA, MAY START THE PROGRAM IMMEDIATELY.  DAYTIME AND EVENING CLASSES ARE AVAILABLE; STUDENTS MAY ALSO WORK FROM HOME OR ANY OTHER LOCATION WITH INTERNET ACCESS.
