Where Dropouts become Graduates
Project HOPE is a dropout retrieval program housed at both Francis Tuttle Rockwell and Reno campuses.
Together with Francis Tuttle’s partner schools — Cashion, Crescent, Deer Creek, Edmond, Putnam City, and Western Heights — this program assists students who have dropped out of school or who are in danger of dropping out. Students who are interested in becoming a part of Project HOPE should reach out to their school’s counselor.
Project HOPE offers an alternative pathway for a student to achieve their career goals. Students do this through three components:
- Academic instruction
- Career training
- Life skills training
Through this program, students can earn their high school diploma by achieving credits through academic instruction. Students enjoy one-on-one instruction as they overcome the educational hurdles that had been preventing academic success. An occupational interest and aptitude test ensure students enter a career training program that is most appropriate for them. This information, along with an interview process, is used to develop and maintain an individualized career-academic plan for each student. Project HOPE instructors maintain all academic curricula to meet the academic standards of Oklahoma education.
Project HOPE succeeds when its students succeed, and that comes in many forms. As a recipient of the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence in Alternative Education award, Project HOPE is continuously evaluated by OTAC (Oklahoma Technical Assistance Center) as an exemplary model of career-related alternative education services.
