High School+

Finish Your High School Diploma with High School+ 


The High School+ (HS+) Program at SPSCC allows adult students age 18 or older to earn a high school diploma issued by SPSCC and the State of Washington. Students can apply credits earned in high school and knowledge gained in the workforce toward a HS+ diploma. Any remaining credits can be earned through self-paced assignments in the HS+ class. 

HS+ classes are offered both online and in-person. The cost for the program is $35 per quarter and financial assistance is available. Most students are able to complete a HS+ Diploma in 6-9 months. 

You must be at least 18 years old to enroll in HS+ and there is no age limit to enroll in HS+. Students who are not yet 19 years old must also submit a completed High School release form, signed by a school official and parent or guardian. This form is available at your local high school or school district office.

High School Diploma for English Language Learners

Do you need a high school diploma for work or college? Our HS+ ESL Support class helps you learn English while earning high school credits. Don't need a diploma? This class may still be for you! You can learn English while studying science, art, career skills, and other topics taught in high school.
