• About the Missouri Option Program...

    The Missouri Option is designed to target students who have the capabilities to complete Missouri high school graduation requirements, but for a variety of reasons lack the credits needed to graduate with their class and are at risk of leaving school without a high school diploma. 

    The program specifically, targets those students who are 17 years of age or older and are at least one year behind their cohort group or for other significant reasons identified in the local The Missouri Option Program plan.
    Students attend school fifteen hours a week until they pass the GED tests.  The students also work, or take additional classes to meet criteria for the Missouri Option Program.  They can then graduate with their class, receiving a high school diploma.
