EdisonLearning Alternative Learning Programs Have Now Produced More Than 2,500 High School Graduates
Since EdisonLearning opened Bridgescape Academies in Ohio in 2011; the company’s alternative learning program has grown and resulted in more than 2,500 students earning their high school diplomas in six states.
Just as important as the total number of graduates, has been the progressive rise in the overall yearly graduation rate.
The 10 Graduation events, which will conclude this weekend in Dayton, have awarded 639 high school diplomas (nearly double previous year numbers) in Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, as well at six locations in Florida.
As was stated in 2011, when the Bridgescape program was created:
“With the number one predictor of success in life being a high school diploma, EdisonLearning is accelerating its efforts to provide an effective and personalized program for those students who want to graduate from high school. The leading international educational solutions provider’s Bridgescape Dropout Recovery and Prevention Centers will provide at-risk and recently dropped-out high school students the chance to earn diplomas.”
Six years later, it is clear that the company is “advancing our belief that every student – given the right tools, support and environment – is capable of exceeding their expectations, and complete their high school education, giving them the ability to continue onto college, attend vocational school, or enter the workforce.”
