Accredited High School Diploma – Educator Information

Graduate More Students In Your District with Catapult Academy

1.2 million students, including about 50% of all African American and Hispanic students, drop out of high school annually. Their prospects are bleak; low wages or joblessness, homelessness, incarceration, and lifelong dependency on social services are typical. Often dropouts are unable to continue their education, let alone contribute to and participate in the education of their children.

Catapult Academy serves students who have struggled to complete high school but who are committed to earning their diploma. We provide free high school diploma programs that operate as an extension of your school district in local student-friendly settings. Catapult Academy re-engages students and provides the rigor and relevance they need to meet the challenges of higher education and today’s workplace, along with the relationships with caring adults and fellow students that are vital for at-risk youth to overcome obstacles and finish school.

When your school district partners with Catapult Academy—and when students enroll—everyone wins:  our schools, our young people, and future generations.
