Imagine a system that will provide all learners with:

  • Access to a variety of learning opportunities allowing each learner to focus on his or her academic and career goals.
  • Multiple ways for learners to exhibit their skills and knowledge.
  • Opportunities to earn advanced standing in postsecondary education and training programs while earning a diploma.
  • Opportunities to obtain a high school diploma with other stackable credentials recognized by higher education and by employers.
