Adult High School, Adult Basic Education, Learn English in ESL

You’ve got this! Change your future by completing your high school diploma! 

Earn your high school diploma or high school equivalency, refresh your skills through adult basic education, or learn to speak English through RCC’s College & Career Readiness (CCR) Division.

CCR is a FREE educational program created specifically for adults.  Each of the six targeted programs is designed to improve your reading, writing, functional mathematics and communication skills so you can better achieve your goals in life as well as a career. C&CR is designed for flexibility to allow one to take classes without disrupting their work schedule.

The six programs that are offered are:

  • AHS: Adult High School
  • HSE: High School Equivalency (GED or HiSet)
  • ABE: Adult Basic Education
  • ESL: English as a Second Language
  • ABET: Adult Basic Education Transition

Participation in the Adult High School (AHS) will not only grant students an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, but they will also become eligible to receive a Career Readiness Certificate and to enroll in Continuing Education Courses.  Additionally, an AHS diploma grants students the ability to apply for enrollment to higher education campuses such as RCC and the University of North Carolina College System or to pursue a career with the United States Armed Forces.
