Classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. and the second and fourth Saturday of each month. Graduation for the evening academy is set for November 2010.
To qualify for entry, each student must be a US citizen and have a valid driver’s license. Students must also complete a background investigation. Financial aid, including the HOPE Grant, is also available for eligible students. Some fees are not covered by financial aid and are the responsibility of the applicant.
