Graduation Alliance has set up a program for working adults in Kansas to earn a high school diploma online at home.

Working adults in Kansas can now obtain their high-school diplomas online.

A new program is aimed at the 10% of Kansas adults who do not have a high school diploma. In the wake of the pandemic, the Central Plains Diploma Completion Program has seen an increase in applicants for the online and free coursework. A mother of four from Olathe shares how the program has enabled her to receive her diploma alongside her son at graduation.
