What is the AHS Program?

The Adult High School Diploma Program (AHS) is a program of study designed for students who left school before earning a high school diploma. To earn an adult high school diploma, students need to pass twenty-five (25) core and elective courses, as required by the North Carolina Department of Instruction and Wilson County School System. Transferable high school courses taken at an accredited public or private school, a community college, or an educational institution may be accepted.

Adults 18 and over (or sixteen- or seventeen-year olds with the proper release forms from the public school and parents) may enroll in this high school completion program. Placement test scores of at least grade nine on appropriate reading, math, and language tests are also required for enrollment.

How long does it take to complete?

Each student progresses at his/her own speed. Students must successfully complete all of the Adult High School Diploma Program requirements.
