High School Diploma

Adults of all ages may take classes that meet the requirements for a high school diploma.  Daytime and evening classes are held throughout the year.  Courses meet state and district requirements.  Students who complete all requirements receive a High School Diploma in a formal graduation ceremony.  New students are initially assessed for basic skills and are then advised on courses needed to obtain their educational goals.  Students are placed in classes according to the results of their assessment and their high school transcripts.  Teachers and advisers work to help each student achieve his or her educational goals. 

A high school diploma from Regional Education Center requires 210 credits. Typically a student earns five credits by completing a 60-hour course.

The Diploma path might be better for you if you passed most of your classes in high school and have only a few credits remaining to make up.


Steps for Registration:

  1. Complete a registration form.
  2. Take our assessment test. 
  3. Meet with counselor to review transcripts and make a plan.

High School Equivalency Test Preparation (HiSET/GED)

Adults of all ages may pursue a certificate of high school equivalency issued by the State of California by passing an exam such as the HISET or GED. Any adult can take these exams at any time. Regional Education Center offers classes to help you be prepared for the exam of your choice. 

Regional Education Center is now an official testing center for the HiSET exam only.

The High School Equivalency Testing path might be better for you if you currently have only a few high school credits but you are now a capable student. (The HiSET/GED has some challenging writing tasks and a lot of algebra).
