Earn your diploma online, on your terms, and graduate ready for your next step. The program is self-paced and can be completed in up to 24 months. Participants can graduate in less time with transfer credits from previous high school(s) and passed portions of the GED, HiSet, or TASC exams.

The accredited high school diploma is accepted by colleges, employers, and the military and the 21.5-credit curriculum is aligned to national standards.
