3 Ways We Make Your Diploma Easier

Students and staff members at Eastlake High School stop to chat with each other.

For almost 20 years, Eastlake High School has been helping students to do what sometimes feels impossible: obtain a diploma and get a head start on a bright future. Our graduates go on to successful careers and lives and often come back to tell us of the positive impact we had on their life. Here are 3 things we do at our tuition-free high school that our graduates say helped make their diploma goals a reality: 

1. Flexible Scheduling

We know that the flexibility of online learning is appealing, but we also know that connection is essential. That’s why we provide a flexible, in-person schedule that works around and protects your time. 

14-17-year-old students attend school in the morning, while our 18-21-year-old students attend in the afternoon. The shorter day, coupled with a self-paced curriculum, means you can meet the other demands in your life, like work or parenting, and still make time to focus on school. 

And if you find yourself needing a little more help on your school work, we offer free tutoring with our after-hours tutor 3x per week for 3 hours a night. 

2. Personalized Learning

Eastlake High School specializes in working with students just like you. Whether you need tailored support for an IEP or 504, or want to graduate early, we work with you to make a personalized learning plan that will get you where you need to go. Together, we’ll assess your strengths, needs and goals and then create a plan that will set you up for success. 

But the 1:1 help doesn’t stop there. Our dedicated staff is known for going above and beyond the expectations. It’s not uncommon to find our staff providing tutoring after school, helping a student write a resume, or just lending a hand. Helping you is why we’re here.

3. We Care

Really, we care. We care that you reach your goals, your full potential and your diploma. We care that you have your basic needs met and we care that you have the right people in your corner

We care so much that we’ve removed any and all financial barriers to achieving your diploma. Eastlake is 100% fee-free, which means that everything from tuition to our Food Pantry and Community Closet is available to you at no cost.
