High School Diploma

RBUSD PDHS/ISP/SBAS HSD Graduation Celebration for 2021
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. Teachers will present (online) topical workshops weekly and will recommend which workshops students should attend based upon their skill set. Students should expect to study on their own approximately 15 hours per week.
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.  
*Update 5/5/21: The Independent Study - High School Diploma students are now gradually returning for on-campus instruction in addition to their on-line learning.  Please check with us for the latest updates.     
Students who complete 220 credits in the required classes at any point during the school year are eligible to participate in a formal graduation ceremony in June.  The graduation ceremony is open to friends and family to celebrate your success!
