Adult High School

Adult High School Credit Program

The adult high school credit program provides an opportunity for adults, 16 years of age and older, to return to school and earn a high school diploma. The requirements are detailed in the District’s Student Progression Plan.

Florida State Board Rule 6A-6.020, Granting High School Credits and Diplomas to Adults, stipulates that high school credits awarded to adults be based on demonstrated mastery of the student performance standards. The rule further states that courses for high school credit leading to a standard high school diploma shall be of sufficient length and content to permit a level of competence which is at least equivalent to that required of other students in public high schools.

Students should have the opportunity to enroll at any time during the year. Courses should be planned to meet individual and small group needs and lead to the completion of credits and passing of state-mandated assessments necessary to qualify for a high school diploma. Credits are earned by successful completion of course requirements and attainment of a satisfactory grade on an end of course examination. The graduation requirements for adult students shall be the same as those for secondary students.

Adult High School Credit Recovery Program

The adult high school credit recovery program for co-enrolled students provides an opportunity for students who are currently enrolled in a K-12 secondary school program to take courses and earn necessary credits in order to receive a standard high school diploma.
