New Jersey Adult Education

Adult High School Program

Adult high schools are public schools offering supervised instruction in the day or evening to allow adults to complete the requirements for a locally issued state-endorsed diploma. Students are held accountable for the statewide assessment in effect at the time they meet all other graduation requirements.  Courses are varied to meet the educational needs of adults. For each student enrolled, an educational plan is developed reflecting:  a) past academic record; b) an analysis of past experiences for which credits may be awarded; c) graduation requirements; and d) a proposed schedule of courses leading to completion of the requirements for graduation.
