Effective June 9, 2017, the Hadley Institute for the Blind and Visually Impaired announces the closure of its High School Diploma Program to "NEW" enrollments. Please be aware that as an active student enrolled in the program prior to this date, you will be permitted to finish your studies. However, it is essential that you adhere to your official program completion date. No extensions will be granted. If you have not completed your coursework by the deadline established, you will be cancelled from the program. Please contact Anna Sechorz at Anna@hadley.edu or via telephone at 800-526-9909 if you are not aware of your expected completion date.

Hadley’s High School Program is nationally accredited by The Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council and regionally by The North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement. Although credit is awarded at the discretion of the local school, most high schools that have visually impaired students have accepted Hadley Carnegie Unit credits for transfer to their students’ graduation plan.
