Late last year, we announced our goal of graduating an unprecedented 20,000 high school students in 2014. This stretch goal at times seemed like an impossible goal, given we "only" graduated a still impressive 13,000 high school students in 2013. We are pleased to announce that over 20,000 students graduated from Penn Foster High School last year, a nearly 54% increase year over year.
Many of these students graduated through our partnerships with youth organizations like Job Corps and YouthBuild, as well as career schools across the country. To be able to deliver accredited, affordable and flexible education to these at-risk students through these great organizations makes us extremely proud of the work we do every day
Congratulations to all of our graduates, and to the organizations whose mission it is to improve the lives of an underserved population.
