Partner Spotlight: In Montgomery County, Ohio, 2019 was a big year

In today’s economy, a high school diploma is no longer the preferred credential — it’s an absolutely essential starting point.

That’s why the Montgomery County Education Service Center has helped students from 14 districts in Western Ohio enroll in programs that provide a flexible and supportive path to achieving their high school diploma.

This year promises to be a big one for students who are being served through the MCESC Graduation Alliance program. With an estimated 100 new enrollees, each new student can have a high degree of confidence that they will complete their time in the program with a high school diploma. Nearly 70 percent of the students who have exited the program so far have graduated or returned to school.

It’s important to MCESC that students don’t feel like their path to a diploma is “less.”

“Students graduate with a diploma from their local district when they participate in this program,” MCESC Assistant Superintendent Amy Anyanwu explained. “It is very important for students to remain part of their community in this way.”


Graduation Alliance partners with school districts, workforce agencies and various other organizations to help create alternative paths for individuals who need flexibility and support to earn a diploma. To learn more about our services, or to contact us, simply click here.
