There are still opportunities to enroll in Project Finish, a new online diploma completion opportunity for adult residents who live in the Shawnee Mission School District boundaries.

Enrollment sessions will take place:
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
August 26 and 29
Horizons High School, 5900 Lamar

After August 29, enrollment sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays at Horizons.

The program will begin on September 1, 2019. 

Once Project Finish students have completed all graduation requirements they will be awarded a Shawnee Mission School District diploma. Students will have access to the online program and coursework 24 hours a day, seven days a week as long as they have access to the internet.

To enroll in Project Finish a student must meet or complete the following requirements:

  • Must be 19 years of age or older.
  • Complete the balance of high school credit requirements in compliance with the Kansas State Department of Education’s 21 credit requirements.
  • Provide proof of identity, proof of residency, and official transcripts of any and all previous high school coursework tried and completed.
  • Take all online final exams for all courses at Horizons High School under the supervision of the Project Finish teacher.

This new program’s home is at Horizons High School. Students may use the Horizons computer lab (which offers 22 computer stations) to complete coursework. The Horizons computer lab will be staffed with an instructor:
Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

Students have the option to complete their online coursework at Horizons, a Johnson County public library, their workplace, or whenever they can schedule it within their day. Participants may use the computer lab at Horizons, the Johnson County Library, or their personal computer.

Any student needing tutoring or coursework support may get assistance from the Project Finish teacher during the designated hours at Horizons High School.
