High School+

High School+ (HS+) is a competency-based high school diploma program for adult learners 18 and older who do not have a high school diploma or equivalency.

Adults demonstrate competencies in reading, writing and math contextualized in science, history, government, occupational studies, and digital literacy.

This can be done through alternative means including, but not limited to:

  • high school and college transcript credits
  • work, life, military experience
  • prior learning portfolio
  • credit for testing

This program expands high school completion options already offered by the community and technical college system to include a comprehensive approach that aligns with adult learning styles and includes competency-based assessments that demonstrate the academic, career and personal competencies needed in further education and employment.

Students are eligible for basic skills tuition rates.
