The Stanislaus County Office of Education will hold an informational orientation for individuals interested in learning how to earn a high school diploma through its Come Back Kids program. Come Back Kids (CBK) is a free, independent study program for adults (18+) who want to come back and complete their education. The orientation is an opportunity for prospective students to learn more about the program. The next orientation is slated for Monday, Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. at the Martin Petersen Event Center, 720 12th St., Modesto.
Adults who want to attend college, technical school, or enter the work force, but have found that not having a high school diploma has stopped them, can “come back” to complete their high school education and receive a diploma. CBK offers a rigorous academic program that is flexible and customized to help participants successfully earn a high school diploma. Students are enrolled in courses according to identified individual areas of need. Choices of courses are available online, and all courses offer support classes with small groups or one-on-one with a teacher.
Currently enrollment is open at sites in Modesto, Turlock, Patterson, Ceres and Oakdale. For additional information about the orientation, call (209) 238-8600.
