Success Centers’ education programs empower disconnected youth to obtain a high school diploma or GED, progress from high school to college and a career path, and transition from incarceration to community.

Early Morning Study Academy

The Early Morning Study Academy (EMSA) provides disconnected youth with the training, tools, and wrap-around services to help them achieve their educational, professional, and personal goals. 

Credentialed teachers and counselors meet the unique needs of participants, including customized curricula leading to high school diploma/GED attainment, life skills and job readiness training, barrier removal, assistance with college and financial aid applications, and assistance with human needs such as childcare—all within a safe and supportive environment.

The EMSA takes place Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 2 PM at our Employment, Education & Training Center (EETC).




Pathways is a free 8-week virtual learning series for all members of the community. You may take all four tracks or just one. Enrollment is ongoing.
