*There is a $40 materials fee per course for High School Diploma and Adult High School Diploma students. You may complete coursework at home or in our Learning Center. However, all exams must be taken at our Learning Center, under supervised conditions.




Learning Center:
High School Diploma

The Learning Center offers alternative, independent-study-like classes for students needing credits toward an Adult High School Diploma, or for Concurrent High School students needing credits toward their home school High School Diploma. The courses offered are at Standard level and meet the California State Standards. Upon successful completion, the student will receive five credits per class, unless otherwise noted. Each student meets with a credentialed teacher periodically in the Learning Center, by appointment. Some courses are available using the online APEX system. A prerequisite for pursuing the High School Diploma or Adult High School Diploma via the Learning Center is that the student is within 20 credits of earning the diploma.

An alternative to an Adult High School Diiploma is earning a High School Equivalency Certificate by passing the GED test. Conejo Valley Adult School offers formal GED Prep classes mornings and evenings. A student should make an appointment with counselor Mr. Kane at 805-497-2761 to discuss the program and options best tailored to his or her needs.
Concurrent High School Diploma Students
Students are required to meet with their high school counselor to have the “counselor section” of the referral form fully completed, before returning it to the adult school; incomplete registration forms will not be accepted.  Certain requirements and restrictions apply with respect to start and end dates, as well as to attendance. For more information, please call 805-497-2761.
From a recent graduates: "This program is great for any student who is willing to learn and succeed. It has brought me the personal satisfaction of getting my diploma and reaching my goals to further my education so I can go to college. I'm so grateful to have gotten second chance here. Thank you Conejo Valley Adult School and to it's amazing staff!
Adult High School Diploma Students

Adult students interested in earning an Adult High School Diploma must first make an appointment with adult school counselor Mr. Kane to have their high school transcripts evaluated before they can register for classes.  To make a counseling appointment call: 805-497-2761.

Adult High School Diploma requirements for graduation are all the following:

1.     Completing 180 credits (fifteen credits must be earned from taking classes at the adult school).

2.     Taking subject-specific courses (they are listed below).

3.     Passing the two-part (Language Arts/Mathematics) California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE)—click here for state website; students are allowed to re-take sections until they pass. Conejo Valley Adult School offers CAHSEE prep through the learning center; the prep may count for 5.0 elective credits for each of Math and Eng/LangArts (if elective credits are needed); the prep does not count toward needed Math or English credits. The CAHSEE itself is administered several times a year at the Conejo Valley Adult School campus; click here for a schedule of CAHSEE administration dates.

A prerequisite for pursuing an Adult High School Diploma via the Learning Center is that the student is within 20 credits of earning the diploma.

California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE)
The California High School Proficiency Examination (CHSPE), a separate test not administered by Conejo Valley Adult School, is for students who need to verify high school level skills. In some cases, students take the test and leave high school early to work or attend college. Those who pass the test receive a Certificate of Proficiency from the State Board of education, which is equal by law to a California high school diploma. Individuals may take the CHSPE if they are 16 years of age. Younger students meeting certain criteria are also allowed to take the test. The CHSPE is given three times each year at various sites in California. The test covers three subjects: reading, writing and math. There is a fee to take the test. Details.
