Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Franklin Virtual High School (http://www.FranklinVirtualSchools.com) recently announced a 30 percent discount on tuition for the children of undocumented workers, many of whom were born in the U.S. yet have not been able to become citizens due to their parents’ citizenship status. This effort is in support of the Dream Act, which was created to help children of undocumented workers earn U.S citizenship though education. Qualification for Dream Act citizenship includes being a high school graduate, having a GED, or current enrollment in a college, trade school or other institution of higher learning. However, the Dream Act also states that students cannot utilize programs that are supported by federal or state funding. As a tuition-based, private institution, Franklin hopes this gesture can help make the dreams of many affected by this legislation become reality.
“Simply type in the promotion code “Dream” when they are ready to pay and U.S. citizenship can be a dream come true,” says Janeen Scaringelli, FVHS Dean of Curriculum. “The fact that we can help in some small way is something everyone in our organization is proud of,” she added, “and with Franklin being 100 percent online, reaching their goal is easier than ever before.”
Scaringelli noted that, “most of these youths are holding down jobs in order to help their families so their time is precious. Working online, in their own time, at their own pace, which is how Franklin is set up, is an ideal solution to gaining the education they need to become citizens.”
With many online schools to choose from, Scaringelli is proud to say that Franklin (http://www.FranklinVirtualSchools.com) has SACS accreditation and a rating of A+ from the BBB, with fully certified high school teachers who develop and/or deliver the curriculum in an easy-to-follow interactive and video-streaming learning format, to which students have unlimited monthly access.
“We are a leader in online education,” said Scaringelli, who added that the school works with graduates to help them meet post-graduation goals. While earning a diploma or certification helps students better their circumstances, Franklin graduates usually “double their chances for a better life.”
Franklin Virtual High School (http://www.FranklinVirtualSchools.com) offers a number of online programs, including traditional diploma, Fast Track, preparation for GED and other state equivalency exams. Also offered is SAT/ACT preparation; interactive tutoring, if needed, is available for a nominal fee. Franklin offers a variety of satisfaction or money back guarantees to help assure students they’ve made a solid choice, and registration is quick, easy and highly affordable.
