High School Diploma Program
The prospective student shall be a least 16 years old and must go through the Warrick Education Center's admission process. Consideration will be given for high school students less than 16 years of age who have health concerns that prohibit them from being successful at their regular high school. The student enrolled in the three area high schools needs a recommendation from their high school principal, counselor, or designee. If a student is expelled from their regular high school, they must serve the expulsion before they would be permitted to enroll in the High School Diploma program. Students must comply with all rules, terms, and conditions of enrollment in the Warrick Education Center throughout the entire school year or they choose to remove themselves from the program.
The Warrick Education Center will provide equivalent instruction for credit on a self-paced, individual study basis. Regular education classes are offered and students have nine weeks to complete two courses. Techniques using applied learning will be used whenever appropriate. Students will be motivated as they master skills and concepts and feel the success of completing courses and earning credit. As each credit is earned, students will show by their level of coursework and personal life that they are better problem solvers, decision makers, and critical thinkers.
The Warrick Education Center is committed to broadening the goals of students as they graduate and advance into an occupation or enter post-secondary education. WEC staff prepare students for college or career and aid students in the selection process.
The Warrick Education Center will provide an adult atmosphere with high expectation for the development of students' academic abilities. The intent is to provide quality education, recognizing the various learning styles and emotional needs of students who may benefit from a nontraditional approach to learning.
The day is divided into two academic settings of three hours each. In each setting the student will take two classes of 1 1/2 hours length. The classes are individualized to accommodate ability level and skill. Students take the courses required for graduation, working at their own pace and meeting with the teachers daily
