This program provides an opportunity for students who did not finish high school to obtain high school diploma. Each student is placed on an independent study contract specifically designed to help complete the necessary coursework. Open Door offers the same coursework as Manhattan High School through the Plato Edmentum Computerized platform.
Take advantage of the on-line classes with 100% teacher support between the hours of 8-5PM, Monday-Thursday. A secondary certified teacher is available to support the students through all of the classes.
Although Open Door is not a virtual school, the classes are web-based. All classes are taken on a computer in our instructional lab. Students are required to spend at least 50% of their time in the instructional lab, but the other 50% can be spent outside of the school (this is known as Hybrid Time), as long as the student is over 18. The lab is open 8AM to 5PM, create a schedule that works for you!
In partnership with various community colleges, qualifying students may be able to work on general education courses towards post-secondary (PSE) credit. This can be obtained concurrently with diploma completion.
