Finish High School

EXETER —Registration for adults who dropped out of high school but who would now like to earn a high school diploma (not GED) has begun. Interested adults should call the Adult Education office at 775-8457 to schedule an individual registration appointment with the program director, Leslie Haslam, to review transcripts to determine credit status, and plan a schedule. Classes begin Thurs., September 5, so don’t delay – call now. The program is open to all residents of the greater Seacoast area and Rockingham County.

An Exeter Adult High School Diploma is granted to those adults who complete requirements similar to those fulfilled by high school students. Courses in English, math, computer, science, and social studies are required, but the remaining electives may be chosen by the students. Courses and credits completed while in high school will be applied towards the adult diploma. In addition, older adults may qualify for military and work experience credits.

The Diploma Program began in Exeter in 1984. More than five hundred adults have received their diplomas through this program. Furthermore, hundreds of area high school students who had fallen behind in their credits have taken courses through this program that enabled them to graduate on time with their classes. Adult high school students also work with a counselor to plan or strengthen career and college next steps. Exeter Adult Education graduates attend college and obtain better paying jobs because of earning their diplomas. Even GED graduates return to get their diploma because they feel they need more classroom experience before going to college.

The selection of courses this fall includes: On Mondays—Chemistry; US History; Workforce Math; and English. On Tuesdays—Foundations of Math; Introduction to Algebra; Algebra I; and American Society and Government. On Thursdays—Biology; Computers for Career & College; Math Review ; and Creative Writing. Limited scholarships are available thanks to the generous support of the Exeter Rotary Club and Exeter Lion’s Club.

  •  Successful Conservation Collaboration

    On June 17, the sophomore class of Sanborn Regional High School made a field trip to the Old Frye Town Forest, one of Kingston's five town forests, to assist the Kingston Conservation Commission in the removal of invasive plants from the area near the trailhead, notably, an extensive and aggressive patch of Japanese knotweed. This project was the culmination of the school's third year of intra-curricular collaboration with the Commission to address local environmental issues, and to make conservation an area of study and research. Congratulations from the Commission to the teachers and students for a job well done!
