Earn you diploma for FREE with our high school diploma program!
Earning a high school diploma can be life changing. You can earn your diploma at no out-of-pocket cost with West Contra Costa Adult Education. Adults interested in enrolling in our high school diploma program must bring a copy of their high school transcripts to be evaluated by our staff.
Steps to get started:
1. ATTEND ORIENTATION
At orientation, you will learn more about our program and take placement tests. Attendance is mandatory for new students and returning students who have not attended a course in the past academic year. Register for orientation at our Alvarado Campus main office. Bring a transcript from your old school to Orientation.
2. SET LEARNING PLAN
A counselor will review your past high school credits, life goals, and available time and design a learning plan tailored to your needs. Computer-based learning, independent study, and direct classroom instruction are options for some classes.
3. EARN CREDITS AT YOUR OWN PACE
Every learner is different. We believe that earning credit should be individualized to acknowledge what you already know and spend extra time where you need it.
