High School Diploma Program
This program provides an opportunity for adults to earn the CCSF High School Diploma. Additionally, the classes that begin after 4:00 p.m. are open to students who are still enrolled in the 11th or 12th grades and wish to earn high school credits to transfer to their regular high school. Adults may earn the CCSF High School Diploma at the John Adams and Mission Centers.
Students may also choose to take the GED® or the HiSet® (High School Equivalency Test) without enrolling in the diploma program.
