Graduated early!

I was behind in school and wasn’t supposed to graduate until next year and my original graduation year was last year.

I finished the same year and was able to graduate with my class. This is a great school and they have so many opportunities for you.

"This program has changed my life , no one understood or knew what life was going to be like during the pandemic or after! To have found this program was a true game changer for me. 

My teacher was way more than anything I could have prayed for, her time, patience, empathy, understanding, patience again , encouragement and overall a wonderful person! I would not have been able to complete this program without her. I feel great, I feel accomplished, I feel as if there is nothing I can’t do, it’s up to me where I go next and I very excited about my future. 

There will never be enough words to express how much I appreciate everyone.”

"I have been aiming to get my diploma for quite some time now. 

I've gone to get my GED and when I took the test I scored a 430, 20 points from achieving my goal and that discouraged me, but some years after, I found Mason Run.

They changed my life by having a program for 22+. I started my classes in December and I am glad to say that I completed my mission by achieving my goal by getting my diploma and I must say that I am very proud of myself and very thankful for my teacher Ms. Brynna. She was very patient with me. 

From here the sky's the limit. College bound!"

"My name is Tim Brazeal. I am 62 years old. I had to drop out of High School in the early 80’s because my father passed away, and I dropped out to get a job to help financially. That was something I regretted my entire life. My mother begged me to stay in school and get an education. She was an LPN (Licensed Practicing Nurse.) I wanted to help anyway I could.

I then got married, had five children. Time passed and no education. I was browsing the net as I had so many times before and found the 22+ website. I read through it completely and got very excited about the prospect of actually doing something I promised my mother and myself. That I would get my high school diploma, and have a chance at college...

Jennifer was an awesome lady and very knowledgeable about everything. She made the signup process simple. She informed me that she assigned me a teacher. Her name is Brynna Detillion. She told me that Brynna was an amazing teacher and WOULD keep you motivated and encourage you to finish. Jennifer could not have been more accurate.

After doing my 30-minute zoom with Ms. B, I realized how passionate and excited she was for me! This entire team was here at my disposal virtually anytime for anything I needed related to my studies and earning my diploma. This program is ESSENTIAL for people like me that just needed the resources and a chance. 22+ gave me all of that and so much more. So from my heart. Thank all of you that make this a reality!"

“I've always dreamed of getting my diploma or GED, not just for myself but for my kids. When I heard about this online program I was very skeptical because in the past either my work or lack of babysitter caused me to put it on the back burner. I have been an online student since the end ofFebruary 2023 and I must say that this program is amazing. I have been able to do it all, be a stay at home mom and also devote my time to my schoolwork. In just 3 1/2 months I sped through 13 credits, my Biology EOC and now lastly all I have left is myAlgebra EOC. The teachers especiallyMs. Brynna have been very helpful and encouraging every step of the way. I wouldn't have been able to do it without her. I'm eternally grateful for this opportunity I was given and I hope more people jump on the bandwagon.
