    PVHS StudentsTwo Pima County programs that assist at-risk students in graduating high school are accepting applications for entry into sessions starting in March.

    Pima Vocational High School is accepting students age 16-21 who want to earn their high school diploma for the program session that begins Mar. 2. Interested students must attend a two-day orientation Feb. 26-27 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. each day, at PVHS’s south campus, 175 W. Irvington Rd., and its northwest side campus, 5025 W. Ina Rd.

    PVHS offers students real-world work experience with their academic classes, enabling them to pair their studies with internships ranging from office work to daycare to nonprofit work. Students leave with an accredited high school diploma, career plan, and possessing the ability to sustain a job.

    Pima County’s Las Artes Arts & Education Center is also accepting students for the GED program session that begins Mar. 2.

A new student orientation takes place Sept. 3 at 8:30 a.m. at the school, 23 W. 27th St. in South Tucson.

    Young people ages 17-22 must complete an application and take a basic assessment to determine their placement level before attending the Las Artes orientation. Potential students may come to campus to take the assessment Monday through Thursday, at 8:15 a.m. daily.
