The High School Learning Center is an open-entry, open-exit diploma program. It offers book-based, web-based and small group instruction. Students may already have credits through work experience, military service, remedial college courses, or completion of secondary education classes in the U.S. or in a foreign country. All Adult School students who earn a high school diploma have the opportunity to participate in a traditional graduation. All potential graduates will receive an official letter informing them of the ceremony by May 2020.

Odysseyware software is available for web-based study. Social studies, science, math and elective courses can be taken for first-time credit, or remediation of failed classes. This software can only be used in our classroom setting.

Accommodations for Independent study/Odysseyware distance learning is available on an as needed basis at the discretion of the school administration. See your program manager for more information.
