1 ADDITIONAL WAYS TO GRADUATE QUICK REFERENCE GUIDE YOUR OPTIONS: Stay at your school. Depending on your age and school history (credit accumulation and Regents examinations) staying in or returning to your home school may be the best option for you. Enroll in a school or program that can help you get back on track to graduation. If staying in current school is not the best option, the schools and programs in this directory might be right for you. They include smaller classes, personalized learning environments, and connections to college and careers. General admissions criteria for schools and programs in this directory are listed below: TRANSFER SCHOOLS Ages (varies by school) Must have completed one year of high school Number of credits required for entry varies by school but could be as low as 0 credits Full time, day school Earn a high school diploma YOUNG ADULT BOROUGH CENTERS (YABCS) Ages Be in the fifth year of high school Have, at least, 17 credits Part time afternoon/evening programs Earn a high school diploma HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY PROGRAMS Ages Attend a full time or part time program Earn a high school equivalency diploma (formerly known as a GED ) LEARNING TO WORK Many Transfer Schools and Young Adult Borough Centers are supported by the Learning to Work (LTW) initiative. LTW assists students overcome obstacles that impede their progress toward a high school diploma and leads them toward rewarding employment and educational experiences after graduation. LTW offers in depth job readiness and career exploration activities designed to enhance the academic component of select Transfer Schools and Young Adult Borough Centers (YABCs). Schools and programs with LTW include a paid internship. STEPS TO GRADUATION: Review this directory to learn about additional schools and programs to help you graduate. Ask your family and counselors to help you choose the school or program right for you. Talk to a Referral Center, Transfer School, or YABC representative to help you enroll. Ask your counselor or Referral Center counselor about other support you might need, like employment or childcare. Visit
