Project Finish is a new online diploma completion opportunity for adult residents who live in Kansas.
Once Project Finish students have completed all graduation requirements they will be awarded a Shawnee Mission School District diploma. Candidates 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.
This program’s home is at Horizons High School, 5900 Lamar Ave. Students may use the Horizons computer lab to complete coursework. The Horizons computer lab is staffed with an instructor.
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 (which offers 22 computer stations), 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.
