LA ORT Offers High School Diploma Preparation Classes

Life happens. If you are one of the 34 million adults in the United States ages 18+ who does not have a high school diploma, it is likely because life got in the way. Whether you did not complete high school because you were struggling in your classes or because you had family obligations, it is still possible to go back and earn your high school diploma.

Too often, individuals without a high school diploma think it will be too difficult to go back and earn their diploma. These individuals are concerned about genuine roadblocks such as childcare, transportation, costs, and time. These are real everyday obstacles that stop adults from earning their high school diploma and moving forward towards their real passion.

LA ORT Offers Childcare Referrals

According to the National Dropout Prevention Center, a significant percentage of students drop out of high school because they became pregnant, became a parent, and had to support family. Whether you had a child in your high school years or had children after high school, childcare is a common roadblock for people wanting to take classes as an adult. Fortunately, LA ORT understands this need and works to provide students with referrals to nurseries and authorized childcare facilities for students who need childcare for their children while attending classes.

LA ORT Offers Transportation Assistance

Another common roadblock for taking classes as an adult is transportation. If you do not have a vehicle, you have to find classes that are convenient for using public transportation. However, then you have to worry about the costs of taking public transportation. Guess what? LA ORT students may be eligible for public transportation reimbursement! And, if you do have a vehicle, you understand that finding parking in the city can be an issue. Not for LA ORT students! They have student parking available.

LA ORT Offers Affordable Courses and Financial Aid

Let’s be honest. One of the biggest roadblocks to pursuing education as an adult is money. Fortunately, LA ORT understands money often gets in the way. Therefore, they aim to make their courses affordable, as well as offering financial aid. Additionally, individual tuition financing plans are specifically tailored to meet the needs of applicants. Even better – LA ORT allows students to pay for their courses using a major credit card online.

LA ORT Offers Flexible Scheduling

Life is busy, so the idea of adding one more thing to your already busy schedule can seem overwhelming. LA ORT recognizes that your time is precious. Therefore, they aim to provide students with the education they need in the shortest period of time. For example, those enrolled in the High School Equivalency Diploma Prep Program do not have to take preparation courses for subjects that already completed and passed in high school. Students only take the prep courses they need.
