High School 21+ is different than traditional high school completion programs

  • It recognizes life competency in addition to classroom time and tests,
  • It opens the door to federal financial aid for college,
  • It is more readily accepted by the military because it is an actual high school diploma rather than an equivalency.

Students must demonstrate competency in reading, writing, and math in the context of science, history, government, occupational studies, and digital literacy.

Students can demonstrate their knowledge in several ways, including work, life, and military experience; a prior learning portfolio; and high school and college transcripts.

The new program brings rewards far beyond the benefit to individual students. Through Washington's performance-based funding system known as the "Student Achievement Initiative", LCC receives extra points for adult learners who achieve educational milestones, including earning a high school diploma and transitioning to college level studies. Points translate to dollars, which is good for the college and the community.
