At Graduation Alliance, we believe that education is the best investment we can make for our society today – to ensure a stronger tomorrow. That’s why we work to give students of all ages the resources, support, and flexibility they need to reach their educational goals and prepare for what’s next.

We offer more than 100 online courses, including a variety of career and technical education classes and ACE credit recommendations. These courses give students the opportunity to explore career interests and earn college credit, preparing them for what’s next, whether it’s the workforce, a community college program, or a four-year degree.

Career and Technical Education

“Career and technical education (CTE) is a term applied to schools, institutions, and educational programs that specialize in the skilled trades, applied sciences, modern technologies, and career preparation,” according to the Glossary of Education Reform. Educational Resources Information Center acknowledges that CTE programs work well for many types of students because they provide students with marketable skills while leaving the door open for college.

Graduation Alliance offers a variety of career and technical education courses. Like all of our classes, they are 100% online, allowing students to earn valuable knowledge and skills at any time and from anywhere.

Courses range from Business Foundations and Introduction to Information Technology Careers to Web Design and Foundations of Firefighting and Emergency Medical Services. Our catalog of career and technical education courses offers something for everyone.

ACE Credit Recommendations

Graduation Alliance also offers students with the opportunity to earn college credit. Many of our courses are recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE).

ACE provides credit recommendations, which can be used to earn college credit. Workforce training, military training or occupations, online courses, and national exams and certifications undergo ACE Review to determine if they have similar outcomes to a college course. These credit recommendations are considered by colleges and universities that are part of the ACE Credit for Prior Learning Network.

Graduation Alliance currently offers 29 courses recommended for credit by ACE through our dropout recovery programs and some of our adult workforce diploma programs. Every Graduation Alliance course is 100% online and can be completed at any time and from anywhere. No textbooks or other physical materials are required.
