Pre-Enrollment Form Potential students are encouraged to complete and return our pre-enrollment form.  Having early information will allow us to:

  • Obtain their school records and be ready to discuss educational choices.
  • Match them with Rebound’s special programs.
  • Keep them informed of activities, events, and important dates. 

Eight week instructional blocks – Teachers have planned their instruction so that classes will be completed in an 8 week period.  Successful high school credit students can earn a half credit every 8 weeks, and GED students can complete a total review of GED test content in that time.  Please note:  we offer no guarantees; regular attendance and lots of effort will be required from students!

Hours of instruction – Classes will be offered both morning and afternoon:         

8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

12:15 to 3:15 p.m.

There will be no evening classes offered during this school year.  Students with credit deficiencies may recover credits during the 2014 summer session.

GED Test – The GED Test and its cost will change significantly in January 2014. The current test is available for only a limited time.  Anyone who has taken the current test but failed one or more sections is encouraged to retest and pass by December to avoid needing to start completely over.  No scores will carry into 2014!
