We all know that going back to school as an adult is overwhelming, but it does not have to be as overwhelming as you think – especially with the compassionate teachers and counselors we have here at Highlands in your corner.
The first thing you should know is that in order to complete your high school diploma you must have 200 credits in all. That’s the goal. The good news is that many of you have work experience, job training, or class completion credits that you are not aware of, which count towards this 200.
The other good news about our program is that it is self-paced. This means that you can move through the material of your classes at your own speed. We understand that each of you are individuals with very different needs, therefore we have created a learning environment that fosters the growth in each of you.
So while it all seems very overwhelming at first, take these things into account. You may not have to take as many classes as you think, you can go at your own speed, and you will be in a classroom full of people in the same boat. With all that in mind, give us a call at the main campus so we can find a location that is suitable for you.
Every Wednesday we hold a new student orientation at the Main Campus. Orientation starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at around 12 p.m. You will register in our system, be introduced to our program, and take a placement test on this day. After the testing, you will meet with a counselor to discuss your educational plan. Please bring in your transcripts, work history, or anything else you think can count towards high school credit on this day for your counselor.
