As the alternative school for CCSD, Career Prep High School offers students who otherwise may not graduate high school a different environment. This chart shows the distribution of Career Prep High School senior class of 2012 by the year they first entered high school. Only 27% (11 students) are graduating after 4 years of high school (2008-2009). The largest percentage of our students (34%) are graduating high school after 5 years. Two students are graduating after only 3 years of high school. The remainder (14 students) first enrolled in high school 6, 7, or 8 years ago. The chart on the next slide may explain why Career Prep students are taking more than the traditional 4 years to graduate high school.

I came to Career Prep because I wanted to finish high school and get my diploma. CP helped me get my diploma. The daycare has been a really big help. It made it possible for me to finish school. I want to get a degree in Early Childhood. I plan on taking some online classes next year. I will work until November when my twins are due, then stay home for a while with my children. Other students that need help with day care should come to CP. They will help you earn your credits.
