  About The School  

Adult Education

Nye County Adult Education is a program which assists students who have not earned a High School Diploma, or those students who wish to take the TASC test to receive their high school equivalency.  Students must be 18 years of age or older to enroll.  The Adult Education program may use the score from the TASC test to waive credits that are required to earn the High School Diploma.  Students must also take and pass all High School Proficiency tests to earn their diploma.

When students enroll in the program, staff will send for their transcripts from their previous high school and then conduct a credit review to see what credits they need for the credit requirements.  Staff will counsel students as to what courses they need and the order in which to enroll in those courses. 

Students in the program work as independent study students with assistance from the instructors in the program.  Students will take one class at a time and must complete all the assignments for that class to earn the credit. Students may take a class in a formal classroom setting, or may work independently on their own to complete a course.
