• The Adult High School (AHS) program provides educational opportunities for individuals wishing to earn a traditional credit-based high school diploma from Adult Learning Center Osceola. Students must provide a transcript for the counselor to review in order to determine if the Adult High School is the best option for the student.

    Admissions

    Adult Learning Center Osceola programs are open to individuals who are 16 years of age or older and withdrawn from high school. For more information, please see the Admissions page.

    Average Program Length

    The length of the program depends on number of credits that the student has, determined by a careful review of the student’s transcript, whether the state required tests have been passed, and the student’s motivation. Therefore, the length of the program varies with each student. While most of the program will be done online, students are welcome to come into ALCO at any time to meet with their teacher for face-to-face assistance.

    Adult High School Success

    Typically, students who are successful in completing Adult High School are students who have already passed some or all of their state testing requirements and have a least 12 credits or more before entering. Meeting with the counselor prior to registration is strongly advised to determine whether this program will help you meet your goals, in your timeframe. You will need to take all the classes required for a current high school diploma, including testing.

    Registration

    Please see the Admissions page for more information. 

    Graduation

    Students will receive their diploma and transcripts shortly after completing their requirements. Graduation ceremonies will be held twice a year, should the student choose to participate. We encourage all students to participate in our graduation; we provide the cap and gown. Your only cost will be the diploma and cover.

    Insurance

    ALCO does not carry student accident insurance. Adults are advised to carry their own insurance. I don’t know if we need this. This was something Mr. Runnels way back wanted in.

    Refunds

    NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN TO STUDENTS WHO VOLUNTARILY WITHDRAW FROM THE CLASS IN WHICH THEY HAVE ENROLLED.
