High School Diploma/High School Equivalency (HSE)

Grossmont Adult School offers adults the coursework required to earn a high school diploma as well as classes to prepare you for the High School Equivalency (HSE) test.

High School Diploma Classes
  
You have a second chance to finish your high school diploma! High school diploma classes are offered throughout the school year (excluding school vacation periods). You may enroll at any time. There are several options available allowing you to choose which instructional method is just right for you.
  • Individualized Learning Lab allows you to complete your classes in a classroom setting. You work individually on the subject you need to complete. The teacher is available to answer questions, provide guidance, issue and grade tests, and write your report card! Classes are offered at the following locations:
    • El Cajon Adult Center
    • Foothills Adult Center
    • Helix High School
       
  • Distance Learning works best for students with busy schedules. You will meet on the Foothills Adult Center campus once a week with your teacher. Your teacher will assign work to be completed at home, provide guidance and answer questions, issue and grade tests, and write your report card!
