Secondary Success Center

Program Description/Goals

The Secondary Success Center offers multiple pathways to success for students who have dropped out of a Richmond Public Schools High School. All interested students will participate in individualized consultations with Secondary Success Center staff members to determine appropriate program placement and other supports needed for successful completion. The Secondary Success Center gives students who have dropped out of Richmond Public Schools an opportunity to complete high school or earn a High School Equivalency Diploma outside of the traditional comprehensive high school setting. Flexible course offerings along with support from teachers gives students a chance to work at an accelerated pace toward completion. Students can still begin with the Center even though we are not meeting in person.

Interested students simply need to fill out the form below.
