MECHS is an evening, self-paced, public, high school that grants regular Georgia High School Diplomas.
In addition to our full-time students, we serve a population of students who take a class or classes with us part time and transfer the completed credit(s) back to the high school in which they are enrolled full time.
We have eighteen, 9th-12th grade sites throughout North Georgia. We are open year round and hold classes in the afternoon and evening, Monday-Thursday, from 4:00pm to 9:00pm.
Our curriculum is self-paced and mastery based, meaning that students progress through the course at their own pace, taking as much or as little time to satisfactorily complete the various course modules as is needed. As a result, no failing grades are given. Students work until they pass.
Credit recovery is available for students who have failed a course at their regular daytime school. Making up failed courses permits students to stay on academic track and graduate with their class. Students may also complete courses they are not able to fit into their schedule at their regular school. New courses require seat time equal to the referring school.
