High School Diploma


The South Bay Adult School is excited to announce the launch of our updated and free accredited Independent Studies - High School Diploma program for students who have previously earned at least 100 credits.  Adult student learners will complete coursework through the Acellus on-line learning system 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 to 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. 


In addition to the on-line learning, students will meet one hour per week, per class, in our Learning Center to take exams, complete on-site class lessons, and receive support from our credentialed teachers. Students may choose the one hour per class according to the scheduled below.

**Please note most classes are late afternoon and early evening.  Students must have flexibility to attend within these hours**
