Our Mission: 

We help at-risk students earn a standard high school diploma and prepare for post-secondary success.

Program Offered:

Central Wake is a tuition-free public high school that operates two sessions per day – morning and afternoon. Students have the opportunity to enroll in the four-hour session that best fits their personal schedule so they have the flexibility to earn a quality education while working, caring for family, or managing other commitments.

Once enrolled, the school works with the student to create a personalized academic plan to graduate, and immediately helps the student to start earning credits at his/her own pace. Courses are computer-based to help the student to focus and track progress, and certified teachers provide individualized support.

The school serves ages 16 to 21. Graduation ceremonies are held in June. 

Students age 18 and younger are eligible for free bus transportation to and from school: https://gotriangle.org/youthgopass
