Adult Education

High School Diploma: The High School Diploma program is for adults who would like to earn their high school diploma. There are a few steps you will need to take in order to enroll in the program:

  • Requesting a transcript from the last high school you attended
  • Make an appointment with the Area Learning Center (ALC) Principal
  • Make a plan showing the courses you will need to take and how many hours it will take to earn the credits
  • Enroll in the diploma program and select classes

This program is different from a G.E.D. because you will be completing a curriculum of high school credits. You receive a high school diploma once you’ve completed the course requirements for graduation from high school.

In essence, you are picking up where you left off in high school but on your own time and at your own pace. High School Diploma courses are structured as independent study, combining in-class time with an instructor, and home study. Free courses for High School Diploma are offered year-round at the ALC in a variety of core and elective credits, such as social studies, science, communications, math, and family and consumer sciences.
