20-25% of students who inquired about enrolling at Dorsey Schools didn't have the GED or High School Diploma that they need to enroll.

After implementing a High School Completion program, they found that the majority of these students matriculated into their schools, and that these students are more confident and motivated learners after having gone through the program.

Denise Fox Pratt, VP of Institutional Effectiveness at Dorsey Schools, spoke during a breakout session at the 2014 ACICS Annual conference about the three criteria they were looking for in a High School Completion partner.
