Competency-Based Diploma Pilot Program

The Competency-Based Pilot Program helps adults earn a high school diploma. The program is free to adults who are over 18-21 years old, living in Ohio and do not have a diploma or a GED.

Counselors work with the adult learners to develop individual plans to identify the courses and assessments needed to graduate and earn a diploma. Providers try their best to schedule instructional dates and times to meet the needs of adult learners.

Please contact one of the Competency-Based Pilot Programs listed below where someone will answer your questions and help you enroll in a program to earn your high school diploma.
