National teen pregnancy dropout statistics indicate that only 38% of young women who become pregnant while attending school will graduate with a high school diploma. Nearly a million teenage moms have babies every year and approximately seven out of ten will drop out before completing high school. When you choose CHS for your teen mom high school diploma programs, you can choose from our online learning or unplugged individualized learning options as well as benefit from the CHS credit recovery for individual courses already earned. Living in the real world requires students to deal many differing circumstances that can lead to them dropping out of high school due to early pregnancy or parenthood.
Every year, over a million students drop out of high school in the United States. That is one student every twenty-six seconds or approximately seven thousand a day and most never receive a high school diploma. Moreover, estimates suggest that twenty-five percent of all high school freshmen will fail to graduate from high school on time. By exercising the self-discipline to complete one of our teen mom high school diploma programs, you are meeting important requirements for many job applications and prerequisites for higher education. Whether you decide to study online or prefer the distance learning for pregnant teens program, every hour spent will be well worth it once you earn your high school diploma.
At CHS, we have designed an innovative pathway designed for Teen Moms that wraps your education around what you already do has a parent. To learn more click below.
