About the Program

The National External Diploma Program results in an adult high school diploma at the completion of the program. Clients show their academic abilities by presenting assignments to be graded for 100% accuracy but have the ability to resubmit when errors are present. Clients complete the assignments on their own time and meet with an Advisor to present their work and receive feedback prior to submitting the portfolio to an outside source for grading.
