Chavis High School (BFCHS).
EOSC (http://www.EducationOnlineServices.com) was founded by a select team of academic and marketing executives. This visionary team recognized the opportunity to help the underserved market of Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) develop full-service online curriculum programs and increase enrollments for students and communities while also emphasizing retention and student support functions.
“I believe this new high school represents an innovative way for individuals to get an affordable, accredited high school education in preparation for transition to the workplace or postsecondary education,” said Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr., President of EOSC. “It’s very important for people to understand that online education today is just as rigorous as on-campus education and sometimes more so. I see this new innovation high school as helping to meet President Obama’s goal of providing opportunities for adults who need a second chance to further their education.”
Also Co-Founder, President and CEO of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network (HSAN), Dr. Chavis previously served as President and CEO of the National African American Leadership Summit, was National Executive Director for the Million-Man March, and, in 1993, became the youngest Executive Director and CEO of the NAACP.

The AdvancED/SACS accreditation, student services, and academic components for BFCHS will be provided and managed by SHCOE with students enrolling for the online courses through the BFCHS web site.
