Earn a fully accredited diploma online for free
PHOENIX, October 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Arizona Adults ages 21 and up can now graduate high school for free online through a new Graduation Alliance program. Funded by funds provided by the 55th Arizona State Legislature, the Arizona Workforce Diploma Program results in an accredited high school diploma—not a GED.
“Finishing high school as an adult is challenging because education is no longer your main job. Many adults want to earn their diploma, but they juggle work, childcare and other responsibilities and don’t have the bandwidth or budget to add evening classes to their schedule,” CEO of the Graduation Alliance Ron Klausner said. “The Arizona Workforce Diploma Program combines time and location flexibility with personal support to give adult students everything they need to finally earn their high school diploma—at no cost to them.”
All Graduation Alliance courses are 100% online and require no course materials or textbooks. Additionally, the program allows students to earn an industry-recognized or stackable degree, giving them both a high school diploma and a marketable skill upon graduation.
“A transcript that is higher than the high school diploma gives students an additional resume so they can feel more confident and prepared for job hunting after graduation,” Klausner said. “We have selected a variety of courses for students to take that will prepare them for entry-level jobs in high-demand career fields such as healthcare, construction and culinary arts.”
Arizona is home to nearly 689,000 adults without a high school diploma, according to 2020 U.S. Census Bureau Data. These adults are likely to have significantly lower average annual incomes, say $9,600than people with high school (US Bureau of Labor Statistics).
“When a student drops out of high school, it not only affects them personally, but also their community and the country as a whole,” Klausner said. “By investing in their undereducated adult population, Arizona develops its workforce and power Arizona a better place to live and work.”
