Polk Education Pathways

Adult High School classes offer courses for adults who have most of their high school credits, test above the ninth grade level on the CASAS GOALS test, and wish to pursue the standard credit high school diploma, and should have graduated within the past 3 years. Eligible students may continue their pursuit of a traditional high school credit diploma, issued by Polk County Schools.
