High School Diploma Options

WALLINGFORD ADULT HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT DIPLOMA PROGRAM (CDP)

The Credit Diploma Program offers adults the opportunity to earn a high school diploma through Wallingford Adult Education. Participants may earn credits through a combination of afternoon courses, documented work or training experiences. Credits may be transferred from public or private high schools and state technical high schools.

To receive this “traditional” diploma, you must earn 20 credits, including those you may have earned at your former high school. The Wallingford Adult High School Credit Diploma Program offers small classes and online courses. When all credits are completed, of which four must be in English, three in mathematics, two in science, three in social studies (including U.S. History and Civics), and one in Vocational Education Arts, a diploma will be awarded.

The program is open to all people who are at least 17 years or older, do not hold a high school diploma, and are no longer officially enrolled in high school.
