Calaveras Adult Education

Calaveras Adult Education is pleased to serve the educational needs of adults who reside in Calaveras County, age 18 and over.  We offer a High School Diploma program and English as a Second Language (ESL) program.  There is NO cost to enroll or participate in our programs. 

More About Our High School Diploma Program:

Calaveras Adult Education offers a flexible program for busy adults to earn a high school diploma through an independent study format.  Students learn from home on their own schedule and meet weekly with a credentialed teacher for support.  Weekly meetings are held in person at our Angels Camp Office or virtually, depending on the preferences and needs of each student.


Our program is designed to help students gain credits toward the completion of a high school diploma.  Unfortunately, we do not provide services for high school equivalency, such as GED or HiSET preparation or testing. 


Our caring staff is available to provide more information if you have questions about what to do next.  A high school diploma or equivalent is essential, and we want to help you meet your goals. 

Did you know 63% of all jobs in the United States require at least a high school diploma?  On average, someone with a high school diploma or equivalent earns $9,620 more per year than a non-graduate. 


Calaveras Adult Education is ready to help you take the next step toward a brighter future!  Please visit our High School Diploma Program Enrollment page to enroll.
