High School+

It’s not a test. It’s a diploma!

High School+ gives individuals 18 years of age or older the opportunity to earn a high school diploma by earning high school credit in YVC Basic Skills classes.

Program Overview

As students show competency in specific subjects, YVC will grant high school credit. Students earn high school credit based on their ability to show they have met course competencies. Students are not required to pass the state assessment taken by high school students. Nor do they need to complete a senior project.

Tuition Rates

Students who qualify for High School+ will pay the Adult Basic Skills tuition.

The fee is $25 per quarter.

Earning Credits

YVC can award high school credit based on evidence showing what students have already learned. High School+ builds on prior student achievement. In contrast, a high school equivalency (GED) exam does recognize any prior learning or high school credits earned. However, that does not mean that High School+ is easier than taking a high school equivalency (GED)​ exam.

YVC can grant high school credit based on student performance on YVC placement tools. An evaluation of a high school transcript will show which high school credits will transfer into High School+ program. Students may also be able to earn credits based on prior knowledge through high school training and/or work experience.
