High School Diploma

on-line registration



Registration is now CLOSED



Based on the information that we have today, our first day of school will be Monday, August 17th, 2020 and all instruction will be by distant learning.  We have changed our registration process to a fully online process.  The link will be posted on August 3rd and will be open until August 14th.  Once you register you will be given an appointment time to discuss your academic plan and set a time to take your CASAS test (All students in the ESL, High School Diploma, and HiSet program must take the CASAS).


As of today we will be operating in a distant learning model for the start of the school year.  This means that all programs will be done using either Zoom or Google classroom, and Edgenuity. You will receive more information about specifics in the upcoming weeks.




Adult Secondary Education


High School Diploma and HiSet will be done exclusively through Edgenuity.  We will no longer be using textbooks through our learning center.  All students will be assigned courses through the Edgenuity platform. The teacher for this class will also teach the ABE-English class virtually.
