About Satellite Diploma Program

Attendance - The Satellite Diploma Program is an adult education program. Students are required to attend for a minimum of 8 hours each week, set a schedule (based on work schedules, home responsibilities, etc.), and follow that schedule. Students are required to show progress in order to remain in the program. Facilitators help keep students on track and on target for success. 

Learning Environment - Each site is a small learning environment with each class consisting of only 25 students. The total capacity of the program is 400 students at a time. The small learning environment at each center allows students to learn at their own pace away from the distractions of a traditional high school.
