i need to get only one credit to earn my high school diploma, is there anything i can do. can someone point me in the right direction on how i can get this taken care of.

Yes, there are two approved private places to earn the extra class. You can take it in summer school. Northeast Prep Academy on Cottman Ave, and Del Valley High on 13th and Chancellor. I don't know the exact cost, but it will run you a few hundred dollars. Well worth it to get your diploma. Classes usually are about a month long. Call them up to ask for more information. Good luck!

Hi, I have a complicated situation going on with high school. I'm suppose to be in the 12th grade but on my report card it say that I don't have enough credits to move on to the 12th so I have to do another year of the 11th grade ((I don't want to do that)) because if I do then I'm not going to graduate from high school until I'm about 22. WHAT SHOULD I DO??

Generally, you should see your counselor but counselors have been cut. You should ask to meet with the roster chairperson at your school. She or he should let you know how you can get the credits you need to graduate. You need 23.5 credits but they must be in particular areas (e.g. 1.5 gym/health, 4 English, 3 or 4 math and science, 2 humanities, etc.)

A friend of my daughters went to the re-engagement center and we went to a school that they told us to attend an orientation but she was put on a waiting list. in the meantime, she is losing time and just turned 19. I'm anxious to help her get something going to help her finish school so that she can move on to college. Is there any program other than Del Val that she can go to immediately?

I dropped out of 12th grade but I still have so many credits to make up .. I went to a eop program at south philadelphia high but dropped out due to financial difficulties. I wanted to know if I was able to get back in being as though I was told I only had 3 months left to graduate &I was also wondering does this program helps my grade point average because I use to have a 3.8 &now I'm not sure anymore but I do want it back up there.

If you have little free time but still care about your education, maybe online courses are right for you. I joined several courses that are internationally recognized and I really learned a lot from them Chandler
