National Diplomas & Career Certificates

Get Your High School Diploma/GED

Many students fall just short of earning a high school diploma and require GED support. Our academic tutors, private teachers and coaches can help these learners complete a diploma certificate program that is self-paced, personalized and flexible. Acquiring a National Diploma offers the opportunity to attend vocational schools, technical schools and colleges, or to begin a new career path.

Students can earn a career certificate in the areas of Home Care Professionals, Child Care and Education (CDA), Hospitality and Leisure, Certified Protection Officer, Office Manager, Homeland Security and more. Students choose a career major and take courses directly related to specific occupational responsibilities. These courses can also be used as elective credits in a traditional high school program. Students move through the Career Certificate Program at their own pace with the support of our online, board-certified tutors.
