Adult Secondary Education Program - High School Diploma/GED

This program assists students in achieving their High School Diploma or GED and in preparing for college and work. Our Transition Team is available to work with you on your college and career goals. 
To enter our program, you must take a Placement Test at the Adult School and attend a Student Orientation to Academic Readiness (SOAR) class.  Between the test and orientation, you will have the opportunity to take workshops to help you prepare for classes at FUHSD Adult School and for your next step toward more education, training, or career.  After your Orientation class, you will make an individual counseling appointment with a member of the Transition Team.  We will help you evaluate your transcript, and you will create a personalized class schedule that supports your learning goals. You will need to bring all of your high school and college transcripts with you to your counseling appointment.  This means you will need to contact your former high school or district office for official transcripts.  Please plan ahead as this may take several weeks.
