High School 21+ program designed for students age 21 years or older, who want to earn a high school diploma while preparing for college-level coursework or a career.

Students can start any time during the year. Tuition costs just $25 per quarter with financial assistance available for those who qualify. Classes are available in both traditional and online formats, on campus and in Woodland. Learn more about online class formats.

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 and military experience; a prior learning portfolio; and high school and college transcripts.

“The HS21+ program is a life-saver! I was originally going to get my GED, until I learned about this amazing program. I am a stay-at-home mother and this allowed me to work at my own pace, while taking care of my kiddos. I have nothing negative to say, in fact, my entire experience has been positive. Thank you, LCC... without the HS21+ program, I am not quite sure where I would be today. I now have plans to make my future brighter and more successful.” — Brittany Stroud, Fall 2017 HS21+ Grad.
