Adult Second Chance

Older than 22? It’s not too late to finish high school.

Life is full of twists and turns. If you didn’t get a chance to finish high school, don’t worry. It’s not too late. The VCS Ohio Adult Second Chance Program allows individuals to take courses they need to complete high school graduation requirements.

Why should I earn my diploma?

A high school diploma makes a person more desirable in the job market. Also, people with a high school diploma earn more money than those without. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a person with a high school diploma will earn $200,000 more over their career than a person with only some high school education.

Adult students will enjoy the flexibility and privacy offered by online classes. Students who are in their 20s or 30s will not feel out of place by sitting beside other students who are teenagers.

How much does it cost?

Courses for students over age 22 that are working toward their high school graduation requirements are available at a rate of $149 per course.

How do I know I’ll get a quality education?

VCS Ohio is a fully-licensed public charter school district in the State of Ohio and operates under the rules of the Ohio Department of Education. VCS teachers are certified and highly-qualified.

Individuals who complete all credit requirements and State of Ohio testing requirements will be eligible to receive a VCS Ohio high school diploma.  Students who successfully complete all coursework, but not testing, will receive a certificate of completion.

When you apply for the Adult Second Chance Program, you will be asked to submit a one-page application form, a copy of your latest high school transcript and testing records. Students may be entered into the class as soon as one business day following their payment for their course.
