High School Diploma

The Adult High School Diploma Program is available online.  In order to minimize the risk to students and staff,  in-person classes are now on hold.
Santa Clara Adult Education Program is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Independent Study Program

We are excited you are interested in getting your high school diploma!  

We offer a independent study model of instruction. Students attend a weekly 30 minute appointment with the teacher. Appointments are available in the morning and the evening. In order to help students progress, regular attendance at the weekly appointment is mandatory.

The teacher assigns each student about 20 hours of work per week to be reviewed at their weekly appointment.
