The girls will work through Lamar County School System online and classes held at The Trojan Learning Center, located in Barnesville, Georgia. The program is OdysseyWare. It is suited to each girls needs. They will work at their own pace with the guidance of a teacher. It is based on Georgia Standards and will provide a transcript for the girls when they return back to their school system.
High School Drop Out
If the girl is under 18, she will be enrolled back in to school and will undergo the OdysseyWare system as a regular High School Student. If the girl is over 18, she will take GED prep classes that OdysseyWare offers.

* It must be understood that we are helping with education only for the time the girl resides at Melba’s Manor. We will help with goal setting and getting her on a path, but after she leaves, it will be up to her to continue. *
