CLS and Grays Harbor College partner to offer GED and other diploma options

Submitted by Chief Leschi Schools

Have you ever wished you had finished high school? Whether you have been out of high school for years, or have recently decided to finish getting your high school diploma, Chief Leschi Schools is partnering with Grays Harbor College to offer multiple paths to make this a reality.

GED diploma

If you did not finish high school, a GED diploma may be your best pathway to completing high school. Most colleges and employers accept a GED credential as being equivalent to a high school diploma. Each year more than 14,000 Washington residents earn their GED credentials.

The GED program is a series of four tests in Reasoning through Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics and practice tests are available in English and Spanish. CLS can assist you in registering for the practice and official GED tests through Grays Harbor College. GHC offers the Transitions, pre-college classes needed to help you prepare for the tests.

High School + helps you earn a high school diploma

If you have high school credits, work experience, military experience, certifications or other life experience, but no high school diploma or equivalency, the High School+ program could be for you!

Some benefits of the HS+ program are:

• You earn your high school diploma not a high school equivalency.

• Working on your diploma can open doors to possible funding support and a quicker path to vocational training and/or degree programs.

• The cost is $25 per quarter (waivers available).
