What type of students does the Dual Achievement Program help?

  • Dual Achievement serves students that are seeking a different environment away from a traditional high school. If you have a student that is unhappy with their current learning environment and has expressed a desire to withdraw or has already made the decision to withdraw, the Dual Achievement Program may be a good fit for them.
  • The Academy of Learning and Performance provides individuals with the opportunity to achieve personal and professional success. Our academic programs are built to prepare students for sustainable employment with hands-on learning and personal enrichment.
  • Dual Achievement is ideal for students seeking a new environment to complete their high school course requirements while earning college credentials to prepare them for in-demand careers.
