Avondale Schools Diploma
& Careers Institute (ASDCI)

The Avondale Schools Diploma & Careers Institute (ASDCI) is a tuition free learning environment for students ages 15-22 years old. Our unique environment is designed to help students pursue their high school diploma online while still providing valuable counseling, mentoring, special education, and English Language Learners services to our students. At ASDCI, we believe that, as young adults, high school students should take a more central role in their education. Each student has unique characteristics, interests, and abilities; and we believe that each student can succeed in a robust educational program that provides them with the independence, flexibility, and autonomy that they aspire to, and deserve.
