Youth Educational Services

Youth Educational Services (YES) is an independent-study based, state of Minnesota approved, alternative program. Curriculum is designed for students who are experiencing some sort of difficulty with their regular school program or have dropped out of school. 

YES is a high school diploma program serving students in grades 9-12 and ages 15-20 (not a GED program). Students receive a high school diploma through Moorhead High School or through their school district of residence. Students from many different school districts and counties in northwestern Minnesota routinely attend Youth Educational Services. 

YES serves two populations: dual and non-dual enrolled students. 
Non-dual enrolled students are students that attend YES only. 
Dual enrolled students are enrolled in a regular high school and YES.

YES is operated by Lakes Country Service Cooperative, Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Lakes Country Service Cooperative is a regional school district cooperative that delivers low incidence educational programs, purchasing, insurance, etc.
