Adult High School Pilot Program Grant FY 2025


This grant is intended to support the operating costs of approved Adult High School Pilot Programs (AHSP) in the State. The two approved AHSP that operate in Maryland are Elev8 South Baltimore Adult High School and the Goodwill Excel Center. The AHSP develops career pathways and equitable opportunities to ensure AHSP participants will have gained the ability to equip themselves with skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary to pursue career pathways in high-growth industries.

AHSP seeks to develop additional partnerships and collaborations with a network of community schools, workforce development organizations, colleges, and universities. These partnerships and collaborations are aligned to improve literacy skills, as well as abilities to perform specific job functions to move adult high school learners forward in their careers.
