High School Educational Support
Argus Community’s High School Educational Support program is for struggling high school students, including youth who are failing academically with a grade below C in at least one subject, overage and under-credited, or at risk of dropping out. The program encourages and supports youth in their efforts to stay in school and attain high school diplomas. Activities include instruction embedded in the visual and expressive arts, opportunities for self-directed learning, career counseling, collaborative and group work, project based learning, computer-assisted instruction, job-readiness training, leadership skills building, and paid internships.
