High school dropouts are getting a second chance thanks to Capital Area Michigan Works and LCC.
Forty students will have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma and college credit.
The students were selected based on assessment test scores and personal interviews.
Michigan Works CEO Doug Stites said the program is neither a solution, nor a fallback for current high school students thinking about dropping out.
"We can't afford to do this for every kid who has left public schools," he said.
There are still slots available for the program. Candidates have to be between the ages of 17 and 21, and live in the Ingham, Eaton or Clinton school districts.
