The Diploma+ (Diploma Plus) program is designed to be an enhanced diploma that young scholars of World Academy for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (WAIE) receive. A typical high school diploma signifies that an individual has completed their required secondary/high school education from an accredited institution. WAIE’s Diploma+ program is designed to provide not only the high school diploma young scholars need but also provide certifications and other degrees for completion of specific academic work conducted during their time with us.
NOTE: WAIE is currently in the process of completing accreditation review for curriculum and will be completed before the first graduation of our young scholars.
What enhanced pathways does WAIE focus on?
WAIE focuses on pathway enhancements that are multifaceted and beneficial to young scholars once they complete their Diploma+ program. We explore pathways that can be applied to either entrepreneurship, workforce, or college so that young scholars have the tools they need to make the decisions they want for their self-defined comfortable life. The pathways we focus on are:
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship
- Environmental Studies
- Data Analytics
“The most important thing for any young person to do is to create a life for themselves that balances their mental health and happiness with a sustainable and comfortable income.”
— Duron Jones
Matriculating scholars to World Academy for Innovation & Entrepreneurship may submit feedback on new pathways that they would like us to provide in the future. Phase one of the process is submission for review by our internal review committee. After successful phase one’s completion we then undergo the accreditation review process for the degree. Once accreditation has completed for the requested pathway, young scholars may participate as either a matriculating scholar or as an alumni member to our community.
