High School Diploma Program

WHAT IS the HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA PROGRAM?

The High School Diploma (HSD) program offers a wide variety of educational classes in order for the continuing learner to earn their high school diploma. Most credit bearing classes are offered through Edgenuity, with some traditional on campus classes available. All high school diploma classes are offered in person, with some on-line options available to eligible students.

We also have the Adult Transition Program that serves the needs of special education students (ages 18-22yrs) which include the completion of their high school diploma and worksite training.

Students are currently required to have their own device (technology) to attend any remote only classes (must meet eligibility requirements).
