With year- round enrollment, our credit recovery provides students with opportunities to earn the necessary middle or high school credits they need to earn their diploma.

I love to see the students gain confidence in their academic abilities and begin to set academic goals like graduating from high school, or attending college. Often time these are things they would never dream possible before coming to CHC.
