Pacific Grove Adult School offers High School Diploma/Credit Recovery and High School Equivalency (HiSet/GED). Students are able to work at their own pace, working from anywhere using our distance learning options. Equivalency preparation materials are offered in English and Spanish (printed curriculum courseware available on an as-needed basis).


Students access online classes using Edmentum Educational software and can be utilized through PC, laptop and most larger personal devices.  Courseware assigned depends on the student's needs.  Students are required to log at least 3 hours study time per week to meet online attendance minimums.  Classes are free of charge.  Job search assistance, resume building, interview preparation and career planning services for students are also available by appointment.
