High School Diploma
Jurupa Adult School offers classes to assist you in completing your high school diploma. There is a refundable $60 deposit due at the time of enrollment. Classes meet Monday – Thursday from 5:30pm – 8:00 pm at the Jurupa Adult School. We also offer an online option, contact the office for more information. This program is aligned to meet academic standards and has a flexible study schedule that you can do at home.
The high school diploma program is an independent study course.
What does this mean?
Prospective students only meet with their teacher 1 day out of the week (M – TH). On this day they can speak with their teacher, receive new courses, turn in assignments, and receive letter grades for completed courses. Although students can work on their own at home, tests must be done at the school site. Students do not have to wait for their assigned day to test. Tests can be done any day of the week (M – TH) between the hours of 5:30 PM and 8:00 PM in the testing room.
For online, you meet with your teacher only once for setup on Odysseyware. Homework and tests are done online.
