Students who are 15-21 years old and have fallen behind on credits towards graduation have options. The NYC Department of Education encourages students to remain or re-enroll in school and will support all students in their efforts to earn a high school diploma or GED.
Throughout the five boroughs there are many schools and progams, including Transfer Schools, Young Adult Borough Learning Centers, and Full- and Part-Time GED programs to help over-age and under-credited students get back on track to graduate. Many of these options are supported by Learning to Work, which is designed to prepare students for life beyond high school, whether the future includes college, work, or a training program.
Additional Ways to Graduate: High School Diploma & GED Programs Directory is designed to help students and their families learn and make informed choices about New York City’s additional school and program options towards earning a high school diploma or GED.
Translations of the directory will be available in Fall 2012.
