Case Study: Tommy's Story
At age 24, Tommy is the oldest of three children from a single parent household. All throughout school Tommy worked hard to take care of his brothers and sisters and try to maintain good grades. However, at age 16, Tommy was forced to drop out of high school to work and earn money to help support his family. During the last 8 years Tommy has jumped from one job to another, never finding the right fit and still only earning slightly above minimum wage. One day on the radio Tommy heard an advertisement for a local career college. He went to meet with the admissions officer about enrolling, but to his dismay Tommy found that he would not be able to receive financial aid because he did not have a high school diploma or GED. Discouraged by the news, Tommy gave up hope of being able to help his family improve its circumstances.
While Tommy’s story is only an example, many individuals share his circumstances due to lack of high school credentials.
Now imagine a scenario where Tommy is able to enroll in the career college even though he doesn’t have a high school diploma.
Tommy went to the local career college and there he met with the admissions officer Katy. Katy told Tommy of his different options. She told Tommy that her college recently partnered with Citizens High School and that they would help him earn his high school diploma with their CHS Express course. This course allows Tommy to transfer his old high school credits into CHS, earn credits for work and life experiences, and potential test-out of courses where he already knows the material. Tommy wouldn’t have to start all over again. Additionally, because of their dual enrollment program, Tommy would also be allowed to take one course at the career college while completing his high school diploma. The best part was that Katy told Tommy that because of the Ability to Benefit provision of the Higher Education Act, his career college costs would be covered by Title IV and that the career college would pay for the CHS Express course to help get started. That day Tommy went home and enrolled in both programs that would help prepare him to be successful in work and life.
This fictional story above is only an illustrative example of how the new CHS Express course and a dual enrollment program can help benefit students.
