HIGH SCHOOL COMPLETION AT UAE
Fall 2020 COVID-19 Update: While in Phase 4 of Governor Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan, all high school diploma/APL courses will be offered as a blend of on-site and remote learning. All students will be required to attend an on-site class at least one or two times per week (depending on the session you attend).
Our staff members work with each student individually to help identify which options will best meet students’ needs. Please call our office at (217) 384-3530, or stop by 211 North Race Street in downtown Urbana to find out how to enroll. There are two ways to earn your high school diploma at Urbana Adult Education.
Accelerated Performance Learning/High School Diploma: Our high school diploma program, Accelerated Performance Learning (APL), uses an individualized course of study that integrates basic academic and life skills with College and Career Readiness Standards to earn an Urbana High School Diploma. We create each student’s individualized course plan based on their course deficits, as indicated on their high school transcript. Students in this program also participate in workshops related to the job search process: resume and letter writing, finding job sources, interviewing and placement, and mock interview sessions with local employers.
Credit Recovery: The Credit Recovery program is for students within five credits of high school completion. Students can receive a diploma from Urbana High School or their home district (a letter from district administration is required). We offer classes including but not limited to: English, Science, American Government, Consumer Education, Geometry, Algebra, etc.
