High School Diploma

Program Overview
The South Bay Adult School is pleased to provide a free Independent Study - High School Diploma program for adults who have previously earned at least 100 high school credits. Coursework is completed through the Acellus on-line curriculum which customizes lessons to the unique needs of each student. Pacing of each lesson is tailored to provide more content and practice time on concepts that are challenging for students and less time on concepts that students have mastered. Textbooks are not required and students are free to study at times that are convenient for them, day or night, wherever an internet connection is available. Students should expect to study on their own approximately 15 hours per week.
 
Due to Covid-19 school campus closures, all High School Diploma instruction will occur on-line until further notice.  When the SBAS Campus is allowed to reopen students will attend the Learning Lab to take exams, complete on-site class lessons, and receive support from our credentialed teachers a minimum of three hours per week. Typically students are enrolled in three classes at a time and attend the minimum three hours per week according to the schedule below.
 
 
 
Graduation
 
Students who complete 230 credits in the required classes at any point during the school year are eligible to participate in a formal graduation ceremony on June 10, 2020.  The graduation ceremony is open to friends and family to celebrate your success!  Due to Covid-19 school campus closures the June 10, 2020 graduation ceremony has been canceled.
