The term "dropout" is marked by negative undertones drawn from stigmas that characterize this group. What we don't hear are the stories that prove these non-completers want to make a change but are often faced with limited options to get a high school diploma. "With the advent of ATB students not being allowed to attend career colleges and schools, it puts them in a void and really difficult position. Realizing that we thought we could put a high school program into our school and help these students," says Patricia Fischer, CEO Dorsey. Today's non-traditional learners require more than the slim options currently provided by the traditional educational landscape. Through our post-secondary partnerships, Penn Foster is helping students obtain their high school diploma by offering programs tailored for nontraditional learners-because everyone deserves a second chance.
