Photos from our 2020 graduation are here.
We are now offering online high school equivalency test (HiSET) preparation and High School Diploma courses for Fall 2020.
According to an old saying, “When a door closes, a window opens.” Lakiya Echols, a student in NDEC’s Youth Hi-SET program, has found that to be true. She lost her job last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but found a renewed purpose at NDEC.
“I attended many different GED programs, but I never finished,” says Lakiya. “But once I lost my job, I was determined to get my GED. I was Googling programs when I came across NDEC.” It was a perfect fit. “My first day here,” she states, “I knew I was going to accomplish what I wanted to do.”
Lakiya began classes in July and will graduate in June. Even though classes are being held remotely, she’s found a sense of community with her fellow students. “My classmates are amazing,” she says. “I enjoy being in class with them.”
