Finish High School
Whether you have been out of high school for years, or have recently decided to finish getting your high school diploma, GHC offers multiple paths for success.
High School 21 - Earn a High School Diploma
If you have high school credits, work experience, military experience, certifications or other life experience, but no high school diploma or equivalency, the High School 21 program could be for you! Foreign education and experience can be considered with proper documentation.
Some benefits of the HS21 program are:
- You earn your Washington State high school diploma not a high school equivalency
- Working on your diploma can open doors to possible funding support while you finish your diploma and a quicker path to vocational training and/or degree programs
- The cost is $25 per quarter (waivers available),
To enroll in these classes, students must complete the Transition Program orientation process.
In a partnership with the Timberland Regional Library system, students can participate in the HS21 program through the Libraries in Amanda Park, Elma, Naselle, Oakville and Westport.
If you are interested, call Transition Programs at 360-538-4167 for more information or read through our Frequently Asked Questions.
If you are not 21 or older or you do not have prior learning experience from high school or employment, the GED® may be your best pathway to completing high school. Most colleges and employers accept a GED® credential as being equivalent to a high school diploma. Each year more than 14,000 Washington residents earn their GED® credentials.
The GED® is a series of four tests in Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics and practice tests are available in English and Spanish. The GHC Testing Center coordinates the practice and official GED® tests and can be reached at 360-538-4049. Official tests are $30 each for a total of $120.
GHC offers the Transitions, pre-college classes needed to help you prepare for the tests. Classes are only $25 per quarter (waivers available). To learn more contact the Transition Programs at 360-538-4167.
High School Completion
This program is for students who would like to complete high school by taking college classes to meet any Washington State high school graduation requirements that are not completed. Students over 19 years of age can participate in the program and would pay a reduced tuition rate per college credit as well as students 18 or younger who must pay full tuition rates.
All previous high school and college transcripts must be provided for evaluation. Students under the age of 21 must have passed the required sections of the high school exit exam prior to entrance into the program.
