Diploma/Equivalency

Program Description

“All of our dreams can come true, if we have the COURAGE to PURSUE them.” – Walt Disney

The first step is the biggest step, you will take to change your life for the better. Come and join our adult school family and take the first step to pursue your dreams.

High School Diploma, Equivalency, and Adult Basic Education classes are offered every week day and certain evenings on our campus, as students can attend as frequently as desired. Our students have weekly schedule appointments with their own teachers within an online program offered in our computer lab/classroom. Students can work every day on their program with teacher assistance and are also encouraged to work at home in between family time or work. The key to success is balance, as Tustin Adult School offers many times, teachers, and opportunities to support a student in their individual success whether in finishing their diploma or preparing to take the GED or HI-SET equivalency testing.

Please note that all Tustin Adult School Students are required to participate in CASAS testing throughout the year as part of our CAEP Funding.
