The Adult High School Diploma program (AHS) offers you a chance to complete the credits you did not earn in high school and receive a high school diploma through an agreement with the NC Community College System, the NC Department of Public Instruction, and Gaston and Lincoln County Schools.

A counselor will review your high school transcript to determine how many classes you need to earn your diploma.

We offer a flexible schedule of six-week classes and web-based courses so that you can select the way you learn best!

All courses are FREE of charge!
