EXETER – Registration for adults who dropped out of high school but who would now like to complete their diplomas has begun. Interested adults should call the Adult Education office at 775-8457 between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at the Tuck Learning Center (former Exeter High School). Classes begin Thurs., September 6, and you must have an individual registration appointment with the program director, Leslie Haslam, to review transcripts to determine credit status, 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 selection of courses this fall includes: On Mondays: Chemistry; US History; Workforce Mathematics; and Journeys English. On Tuesdays: Foundations of Math; Introduction to Algebra; Algebra I; Geometry; and American Society and Government. On Thursdays: Biology; Computers for Career & College; Math Review ; and Foundations of English.
