Rutherford County Schools is partnering with Graduation Alliance to make enrolling in its adult high school program more convenient for a greater number of potential students from throughout the community.
The hallmark of the program will be the intensive human support students receive during their time in the program. Tennessee-certified teachers will serve as tutors in each content area.
“This is going to provide more opportunities to serve more people in our community,” said Dr. Kay Martin, secondary education coordinator for Rutherford County Schools. “It’s going to meet (students) where they are and help them complete their degree no matter what stage or responsibilities they have in life right now.”
The entire program is available 24 hours a day online and those pursuing the degree can access their work from anywhere, which will more easily allow for them to work a full-time job.
Annie Williams, an adult high school specialist for Rutherford County Schools, is available to assist with questions regarding enrollment and graduation.
Her office is located at the John Colemon Elementary School Annex.
To graduate, students must meet the graduation qualifications from the year they were originally expected to graduate. For instance, if someone from the Class of 1999 enrolls in the adult high school, they will be need to meet the ’99 graduation requirements as opposed to the 2022 requirements.
