Miller-Motte College Announces New High School Completion Program Available to Prospective Students

Program Serves as Pathway to Higher Education and Career Training, Offers Opportunity to Earn a Diploma through Penn Foster High School  

Wilmington, NC (3.2.2017) — Miller-Motte College announced the availability of a new high school completion program for Wilmington residents through its partner, Penn Foster, one of the oldest and largest high schools in the United States. This new program is designed for students from traditional high school age to adult learners who are interested in pursuing higher education and career training but lack the proper credentials, including proof of high school graduation.

Students accepted into Miller-Motte’s high school completion program can earn a regionally and nationally accredited Penn Foster High School diploma at their own pace through a combination of online and classroom instruction offered right on the Wilmington campus, at no cost to them. Transfer credits may be awarded towards this 21-credit curriculum for students who have completed some level of high school and/or GED. Upon completion of the Penn Foster High School program, students now have the option to continue their education and career training with Miller-Motte College.

“We are pleased to partner with Penn Foster to introduce a program of this caliber,” said Erin Easton, Campus Director. “It is our hope that the program will not only support our students but also the entire community by providing residents with a pathway to pursue higher education and career training, especially for in-demand careers in areas such as Healthcare, Business and Beauty & Wellness.” 

Penn Foster is one of the largest high schools in the United States with more than 60,000 students through direct enrollment or partnerships with career colleges and national youth organizations including Job Corps and YouthBuild. In 2014, nearly 20,000 students graduated with a Penn Foster high school diploma. The high school is licensed by the Pennsylvania State Board of Private Licensed Schools, and regionally accredited by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association (CSS-MSA) and the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC).
