Grad Solutions was founded on the belief that every student has the ability to graduate high school. The program primary focus is to make the goal of attaining a high school diploma within reach. Since Grad Solutions opened its doors in 2012, the program has been helping students fulfill their potential. This is accomplished through personalized instruction, individual mentoring, excellent curriculum, flexibility, and a progress based program that currently does not require minimum attendance or seat time.
During the five years that Grad Solutions has been helping students attain the goal of earning a high school diploma, the program has developed a proven operational, instructional and support structure that cannot help but result in student success. Supported by a highly proficient, professional and experienced leadership, mentor and instructional team, the program’s current student population realizes 80% successful progress toward graduation monthly. Additionally, supported by a finely honed monitoring and reentry process, the retention rate of students has steadily increased during the program’s existence.
Operating under RS17:221.6, Louisiana School Dropout Recovery Program statute, Grad Solutions, LLC, will be acting as a vendor partner with the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools. The primary goal of this expansion is to offer high school diploma options to students who have disengaged from high school. Accredited by Accreditation International and Middle States Regional, Grad Solutions has been providing these high school diploma options to high school and adult students since 2013.

This program did help me a lot. I had given up and didn’t even want to try but my sister graduated from Grad Solutions and she told me how amazing it was. I can’t believe I graduated with a high school diploma and not just a GED. Thank you for this amazing program.Edith Miranda Oliva, 2017 Graduate
