Adult High School Diploma (AHSD) Program

The Adult High School Program gives returning students the opportunity to complete the courses needed to earn a High School Diploma. The program benefits people who never completed high school but would like to attend college, get a better job, enter the military, or just have the satisfaction of receiving their High School Diploma.

ECC's Adult High School Program is offered in conjunction with Edgecombe County Public Schools and is fully accredited as a high school.
