At Excel High School, we take pride in our student success stories, particularly those that emerge from collaborative efforts with other educators. In today's blog post, we will spotlight a notable example from one of these initiatives, a success story from our partnership with Gale.
The partnership between Excel High School and Gale focuses on providing accessible, high-quality educational opportunities to adults. Through public libraries, this program offers a tuition-free, fully online platform for adults to earn an accredited high school diploma. With its academic focus and support resources, this program equips learners for future success in college, career advancement, or new vocational paths.
A recent story from Oklahoma, highlights the transformative impact of this program on the life of adult student, Jessica Martin.
Transforming Lives Through Education
Jessica Martin's journey is a testament to the power of dedication and the opportunities provided by the partnership between Gale and Excel High School. Overcoming personal challenges and juggling a busy life, Jessica utilized the flexibility offered by the Gale program to work towards her high school diploma.
She often studied late into the night to fulfill her goal of earning her diploma by the age of 30. Her story, like those of many others in this program, demonstrates the resilience and commitment of adult learners striving to achieve their educational goals.
