I teach History for the night portion of our program. Christel House DORS is an excellent program that provides adults the opportunity to finish high school. Our students recieve a diploma, and through our partnership with Ivy Tech Community College, they can earn college credits as well. We have a very strong and supportive team of teachers and administration that make the program run smoothly. It's a sefl paced, blended learning environment, meaning students recieve a combination of direct instruction and online curriculum and can complete their semesters at their own pace. The more you do outside of class, the quicker you graduate! We are getting ready to celebrate out first graduation, and witnessing the sense of pride and accomplishment in the students makes this work incredibly fufilling.

Christel House DORS gives adult learners the opportunity to complete their high school diplomas, as well as earn dual enrollment credit through Ivy Tech Community College. It's a caring, self-paced, and positive academic atmosphere that promotes individual and group learning. The school really focuses on preparing lifelong learners -- for college and beyond!

Students here not only get individualized instructions, whole group instructions, but they also work at their own pace. The teachers and staff at Christel House DORS really care about the students and work closely with them to ensure that they are getting the help they need, not only academically, but in their personal lives as well. We are a great support system for others. Christel House DORS is a great place for you to get a second chance at earning your high school diploma.

Christel House DORS is a great environment for adult learners. They have the opportunity to engage in a rigorous curriculum to get on track to earn their high school diploma, it is truly a rare second chance! The courses are rigorous but really prepare students for the next level. This is the place to come for those adults who want to go to college but do not have the diploma piece yet.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
