Due to recent State Legislature changes, the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) has been suspended through July 2018. That means passing the CAHSEE is no longer required to earn a diploma (through July 2018). The new law also states that beginning in January 2016 students who completed all graduation requirements, except for passage of the CAHSEE, may be issued their high school diploma from the school they last attended. If you did not pass CAHSEE while in high school, and were also in need of more credits, now is the time to come back to school to earn your diploma. A high school diploma will improve your chances or getting a job and qualify you for higher paying jobs. Vista Adult School will help get you on track to your diploma. We are affordable, friendly and close to home. Call or come to an orientation to learn more.
We are an ETS authorized testing center and offer the HiSET exam via computer or paper/pencil. The State of California has recently approved the HiSET exam, which is an alternative to the GED. To sign up you must first register through www.hiset.org; all registration, scheduling and payment is done through the HiSET website. The exam consists of five parts: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. The cost of the first test is $44 (which includes the $20 State fee) and all subtests after that would be $24 each. All tests purchased include 2 retakes. More information can be found at the www.hiset.org website.
Classes are offered in the morning and evening; as well as through an online independent study option.
To enroll in the High School Program, students must be at least 18 years of age and attend a mandatory orientation. It is important to bring a copy of your most recent transcripts with you to orientation.
HSD Program orientations and classes are held at the VAS Sunset Campus. Space in orientations is limited; we recommend you arrive at least one hour prior to the start time. Please report to the office to begin orientation process.
These are the minimum course requirements as identified by the Vista Unified School District for graduation. Successful completion of each course is required to receive a diploma.
