ACADEMIC EDUCATION CENTER:

In the Academic Education Center, there is the opportunity for all students, to acheive their intended academic goals. We provide a variety of educational vehicles that will enable them to earn a high school diploma, pass the CAHSEE exam, assist students to pass the GED test and learn the English language. "Promoting education", academic or vocational, is a school motto.

For the students who desire to earn a high school diploma, they are required to provide transcripts from previous schools or educational institutions. They may also provide scores from completed GED tests which potentially earn additional credits. Students, who are still in high school and who desire to take academic courses from the adult school, must receive permission from their high school counselor. ESL students do not require any transcripts to attend the adult school.

HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA PROGRAM:

Students will have the opportunity to earn their high school diploma at their own pace, utilizing self-instructional materials/On-line credit recovery and an instructor to assist with guiding the students. All subjects offered in the high school diploma program must be completed in order to earn a diploma, in addition to the passing of the CAHSEE Exam.. The required number of credits to earn a diploma is 190 credits.
