The short answer is... It's up to you!!! The courses you need to take at New Directions depends on the credits you received in high school. These courses will be outlined in your graduation plan. Once you complete all of those courses, you are a graduate! The more time spent on coursework, the faster your diploma can be achieved.
You are able to inquire about enrollment at any time by clicking the banner on our home page – “Would you like to enroll?” We have four enrollment periods during the school year, with start dates in August, November, January, and April.
Most likely, yes. BUT, if you still do not have the time to spend on completing courses, please don't enroll until you do have the time. If you are a repeat offender, you have already been notified if you are no longer welcome to enroll with our program.
When a student enrolls, they are enrolling for the current school year. The school year goes from July to June. If a student drops or is dropped from the program, they can enroll again at any time with permission from our coordinator or wait until the following school year. Students who do not graduate during the current school year will need to re-enroll the following school year to continue with their courses.
Yes! The only way to avoid doing an orientation each time you enroll at NDLA is to GRADUATE! Things change every year in education. Completing orientation will help you be successful in our program.
Complete courses before deadlines, and communicate with your advisor. The NDLA Student Handbook on our FORMS tab will have more details.
