The High School+ program is designed for students 18 and over who want to earn a high school diploma while preparing for college-level coursework or a career.

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.

  • All students under the age of 21 must complete all graduation requirements, including non-credit requirements and the High School and Beyond Plan
  • Students aged 21 and older are required to meet the minimum credit requirements and are not held to additional non-credit requirements.

“The HS+ 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 HS+ 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 HS+ Grad.
