…Earn my high school diploma?
The Smoky Hill Learning Center’s Virtual Diploma Program can help both adults and current high school students to earn an accredited Kansas State Board of Education high school diploma. Because it is an accredited public school program and not a GED program, there is no tuition charge.
School age students in our member school districts are eligible with written approval from a school official from their home district. They must complete two, six-hour attendance days during the first six weeks of enrollment.
Adults may earn diplomas from one of our cooperating school districts – Abilene USD 435, Glasco/Miltonvale USD 334, or Pawnee Heights USD 496. They must earn at least two credits (or four semester courses) each semester.
Both adults and school age students must attend on-site orientation.
Visit here for more information about the program and to enroll.
