The High School + Program is an opportunity for adults aged 18 and over to complete a Washington State High School Diploma. This program offers students a less expensive way to earn high school credits by completing coursework in our Basic and Transitional Studies division.

Work with our HS+ instructor to demonstrate abilities in reading, writing, and math within subject areas such as science, history, government, and the arts.

The program combines your current studies with previous learning and life experiences.

For example

  • Do you already have some high school credits?
  • Do you have work or military experience?
  • Do you have any certifications or technical training (CPR/First Aid, Food Worker card)?
  • Have you taken any GED tests or college classes?

For information on the pathway and continuing after earning your High School diploma, check out the HS+ Map.
