Achieve Parenting Program
The Teen Parenting Program at McLain High School is a program that supports pregnant and parenting teens in a variety of ways. It is through this program that teens who are expecting a child or already have one are offered the opportunity to attend and receive credit for regular high school classes as well as courses that provide supportive learning experiences in regards to the labor & delivery process, child development, parenting skills, nutrition, money management, relationships, and much more. In addition, while these students attend classes during the day, they can take advantage of the on-sight daycare which allows them to interact with their children during breaks throughout the school day.

Every quarter is broken down into two modules. Every module, the student will take two 90 minute classes and earn .5 credits. Students also earn .25 credits through the Period 2 class which lasts for one quarter. Additionally, students are required to choose a pathway credit.
