High School Completion (Diploma)

San Juan Unified School District Adult Education Program offers high school credit courses that count toward the completion of a high school diploma.  Adult students work at their own pace in multi-subject classes under the direction of credentialed teachers, as needed.  A high school diploma is earned after successful completion of the requirements, 220 credits in specified subject areas. 

GED Test Preparation Classes

GED preparation classes will help you develop the skills and confidence you need to pass the General Education Development (GED®) exam. (Also available through distance learning). 

Our programs have continuous enrollment throughout the school year.  Students will be placed into classes after the registration process is complete. 


Transcripts are only needed for high school completion (diploma); not for GED test prep classes. If you are interested in high school completion (diploma), please email your unofficial high school transcripts from the last high school(s) you attended: Click here to email transcripts
