National External Diploma Program (NEDP)
Nominal fee to participate
The NEDP is a competency based applied performance high school diploma program that credentials adults who have acquired high school level skills through their life experiences. Students demonstrate the application of high school level skills without attending traditional classes. A key feature of this program is that it is an assessment program, not an instructional program.
NEDP is not a stand alone program. Participants must be concurrently enrolled into the Construction Trades Program or Careers Unlimited Program
Digital Literacy/Business Entrepreneurship
This Program is a technology-based education and training program designed to assist students in learning to identify computer devices and applications. Additionally, students who are interested in developing entry-level administrative employment and entrepreneurial skills are ideal candidates for this class. This is not a stand-alone class. It is integrated throughout all courses.
The mission of the Four Walls Career and Technical Education Center is to provide unemployed and underemployed District of Columbia residents with basic literacy skills, employability skills, and career and technical education as a means of increasing self-sufficiency and improving quality of life.
