Adults today are living longer and are realizing that they can continue their education far beyond the traditional school model of the past.
Programs of many types offer lifelong learning where adults can develop their skills, interest and values that lead to fulfilling lives. Whether you want to earn a high school equivalency degree, start college, finish college or just learn to redesign your backyard, you'll find the resources here.
Adult Equivalency Programs
There are a variety of high school equivalency options designed to fit your learning style, skills, experience and schedule. The most well known is the General Educational Development (GED) Diploma, available internationally. Other programs are the External High School Diploma (EDP), Foreign High School Diploma, High School Equivalency Program (HEP) and the High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED).
