Each student is assigned a life coach. Our life coaches are compassionate and trained professionals who address life barriers and issues that may have caused students to drop out of high school in the past. Coaches are responsible for keeping students engaged and motivated to earn their high school diploma. Individual Education Plans for each student are developed by our life coaches.
