DETROIT, Mich. (August 2, 2017) – If you’re between the ages of 15 and 22 and need a flexible program to help you earn a high school diploma, Pro-Literacy Detroit is offering an attractive alternative.

Pro-Literacy Detroit, a non-profit organization fostering adult literacy, recently announced a partnership with Cyber Education Center (CEC), which provides free online classes to help Michigan students earn high school diplomas. Students receive credit toward their diploma for classes already taken.

CEC’s online classes, which meet Michigan curriculum standards and are authorized through Redford Union School District, enable students to learn at their own pace and receive a laptop and Internet connection at no cost. Students are also assigned a personal academic coach and work with certified teachers and mentors online or in person.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for students who have difficulty learning in a traditional classroom setting or whose life situation and social circumstances keep them from attending classes during regular school hours,” says Margaret Williamson, executive director of Pro-Literacy Detroit. “We have years of experience providing literacy training and pairing adult and non-traditional learners with tutors and mentors. Our partnership with Cyber Education Center will help us fill the gap for people who need a customized program to help them succeed.”

For more information and to earn a high school diploma, call Pro-Literacy Detroit at 313-872-7720. You can also enroll in person at the Pro-Literacy Detroit office, located at 12300 Morang Drive in Detroit. Hours are between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The deadline for registration for the 2017-2018 school year has been extended to August 18, 2017. Eligibility is open to all Michigan residents.
