Mountain Education Charter High School (MECHS) is set to open its newest site in Dawson County on October 24, 2016. Like other MECHS sites, the Dawson County Site will be open Mondays through Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The site will be located at Dawson County’s Hightower Academy at 175 Tiger Circle, Dawsonville, GA 30534.
MECHS is a SACS accredited, tuition-free, non-traditional, evening high school with a self-paced curriculum and a flexible attendance policy. Students choose the courses they work on each night and work through the self-paced online curriculum with the guidance of a certified teacher in the classroom. Students are supported by teachers, mentors, counselors, and graduation coaches who work diligently to keep the students on track towards graduation. The staff at MECHS genuinely want to see every single student succeed and will go above and beyond to make sure students walk away from MECHS with a Georgia High School Diploma.
Having a high school diploma increases our graduates’ chances of getting a job, provides them the opportunity to attend college or technical school, raises their salaries and their self esteem, and it can be their ticket towards a better, brighter future.
