JERSEY CITY, N.J. - July 8, 2014 - PRLog -- With the year’s graduation season concluding, EdisonLearning congratulates the 700 students who earned their diplomas from the organization’s seventeen partnership high schools in eight states.

“We are proud of the hard work and determination shown by these young people to attain their high school diploma,” said Thom Jackson, EdisonLearning President & CEO, “and we are honored to have played a role in helping them achieve this step in their educational journey.”

The graduates represent the full extent of EdisonLearning’s school partnerships, which include: Provost Academies – public state-wide virtual high schools; Magic Johnson Bridgescape Academies – alternative education for students who left school; and Managed Charter and District schools – turnaround and improvement of under-performing schools.

“We know that millions of young Americans - due to their socio-economic status – do not finish school, do not find a decent job, and will never go to college.  We also know that countless students need an alternative from the traditional brick-and-mortar schools, one more suited to their learning style,” Jackson said.

“These 700 graduates provide the best and clearest example of how EdisonLearning has maximized its unique perspective and longtime role in creating innovative educational solutions – to definitively address their needs,” Jackson said.

For the coming 2014-2015 school year, the organization’s Magic Johnson Bridgescape Academy program in Chicago will add three new locations – bringing the total to five Academies serving 1,000 students.

Long considered a pioneer in charter schools, EdisonLearning today provides an extensive portfolio of proven K-12 solutions, including: school improvement and management of charter and district schools, Magic Johnson Bridgescape Academies focused on dropout prevention and recovery, state-wide virtual high schools, and eCourses - a full online curriculum.
