Adult High School Diploma

Do you Need to Complete your high school education?

Starting January 1, 2014, new tests and scores will be issued, which means all scores prior to 2014 will become invalid and cannot be combined with the new test scores.

Are you. . .

  • Thinking about ways to help your family?
  • Thinking about your future?
  • Thinking about college?

There is no better time to take this step.

Adult H.S. Diploma classes offer students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma sanctioned by the Board of Education of Rutherford and Polk Counties.

Students are given full credit for any units they have completed in high school. Remaining units needed to qualify for the AHS diploma can be completed at the Spindale Campus or online. Classes are FREE.

The GED class focuses on the areas of mathematics, literature, writing, social studies, and science. Isothermal Community College offers classes in a variety of locations and online. Classes are FREE.
