The Adult Education High School Diploma program offers standards-based curriculum that allows you to earn a high school diploma as an adult. The program ensures that graduates acquire critical academic skills necessary to continue their education and provides the opportunity to achieve success in life. Our program is free and offers a reduced credit requirement of 150 credits, making it easier to earn your diploma and move forward in life. Students can also take free college classes through Victor Valley College while they are enrolled and attending with us (not all VVC classes are offered).
To enroll into the diploma program you will need a government issued ID and your official transcripts from the last high school you attended, in addition to your completed registration form (we will not need your transcripts if your last high school was within our district, VVUHSD). Please note your last school attended accordingly on your registration form, including if it was with us). We will apply any previously earned credits to our requirements and they will transfer over to your transcripts through our district. If you do not have any previous high school credits, you may enter into our "start fresh program" where you will enter with 0 credits and work towards the 150 credit requirement (please write "SF" on your registration under where it asks for your last school of attendance if you will be entering into our "start fresh program" with 0 high school credits). To order your official transcripts, reach out to your previous school to ask their specific procedure for ordering them. Note that a small fee may apply. It is important that you do not open the official transcripts once you receive them, as they will no longer be official. The most reliable way for us to receive your transcripts is to have them delivered to you, then bring them into our office, or they can be emailed to us @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Emailed transcripts must be signed and come directly from the schools email address to our Adult Ed email address. * WE CANNOT ACCEPT EMAILED TRANSCRIPTS FROM STUDENTS.
Class times are as follows:
When: Tuesdays and Thursdays
Time: 3:30 - 6:30 and 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. (depending on assigned class)
High School Diploma courses are held on campus. Attendance is required at least once a week. Students who do not follow our attendance policy will be dropped after 2 consecutive weeks of non attendance. Students can also work from home at their own pace at any time wherever they have an internet connection.
All students MUST take our assessment test. This is a basic reading and math test, and is NOT a pass or fail test. This test is mandatory and we cannot assign you to a class until this test has been taken. When you receive an email from us regarding your registration, that email will include a link to sign up for one of our testing sessions. Please read the email thoroughly and follow the instructions in the email.
After registering, you will receive an email within one week letting you know what is required. If you register during the months of June or July, you will not receive an email until August when we return back to the office after the summer break. Registration may take up to two weeks for processing once we have all the items we need. Please check your email frequently, as this is how we do most of our communication.
