Adult Secondary Education (High School Diploma)

studentsThe adult high school diploma program is open entry and self-paced. Classes meet morning, afternoon, and evening. Students earn credits in subjects according to their personalized program. Each individual program is developed by counselors based on transcripts from students’ previous schooling, work experience, military service, knowledge of a foreign language and other sources.

In high school diploma classes, students learn required skills and earn credits in social studies, English, science, mathematics (including Algebra), fine arts or foreign language and electives to complete the 190 credits required for graduation (see below). Preparation for the California High School Exams (CAHSEE) in English Language Arts and Mathematics can be incorporated into daily work or completed in separate sessions.
