Important Academic Information for Parents Students at Mountain Education Charter High school must have 23 credits to graduate. On average, students that attend school each night from Monday through Thursday while working 4 hours per night can earn one credit in approximately one month. Graduation occurs when a student earns 23 credits in their respective “Plan of Study,” which is developed by the school and approved by parents. Ask about your student’s “Plan of Study” when you attend any of the parent meetings offered at school Students actually “graduate” the day that their respective plan of study is completed. However, they may then choose to take part in the graduation ceremony, which is scheduled in late May.




Upcoming Events
An Academic, Individualized, Evening High School
Mountain Education Charter High School (MECHS) is a collaborative effort of Elbert, Fannin, Forsyth, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Pickens, Rabun, Towns, Union, and White County School Systems. The MECHS collaborative organization also operates sites in Habersham and Stephens Counties. We are an academic, self-paced, individualized evening high school that serves students who are seeking a non-traditional school environment and who desire a Georgia high school diploma.

MECHS also serves students who need to make-up missed credit from their regular high school, enabling them to stay on academic track and graduate with their peers. 

MECHS is a year-round high school that offers all Georgia required curriculum courses as well as a variety of vocational courses and state-mandated testing.
