SOUTH-CENTRAL : Dropouts Are Invited to Drop Back In
If you’ve always dreamed of going back to school to get a high school diploma, now’s your chance.
The Fremont Community Adult School, 7676 S. San Pedro St. in South-Central, is participating in the 10th annual “Drop-In Day for Dropouts” on Thursday from 1 to 9:30 p.m.
“Drop-In Day” is part of a statewide effort organized by adult schools to reach those without a high school diploma. Participants in the program will receive counseling to find the best way to earn a diploma.
Dominick Cistone, assistant principal at Fremont adult school, said that a high school diploma can open up career opportunities and sets a good example for children.
“It would be advantageous economically to have a high school diploma. It’s valuable for improving your employment status,” Cistone said.
The school’s diploma program is free and tailored to an individual’s needs. Students can attend morning, afternoon or evening classes. In addition to the diploma program, the school also provides other educational services for senior citizens, immigrants and disabled adults. It provides vocational and job training and offers classes for the citizenship examination.
