What is your goal?

We have a variety of programs to help you meet your individual goals and academic needs.

Earn a High School Diploma or GED

Basic Education for Adults: Career and Academic Preparation (CAP) classes

CAP classes help students work on their foundational skills—reading, writing, math, technology, and English language. Students earn high school credit and prepare to transition to college-level classes in CAP courses.

High School+ Program

High School+ is a competency-based high school diploma program. Prior life, work, or school experience can count towards your diploma. 

GED Prep

The GED is a four-part test that demonstrates that you have the same level of knowledge as a high school graduate and is an alternative to adult high school diploma programs. Clark College’s CAP classes will help prepare you to take the tests.  

Prepare for College and Career

Basic Education for Adults: Career and Academic Preparation (CAP) classes

CAP classes help students work on their foundational skills—reading, writing, math, technology, and English language. Students earn high school credit and prepare to transition to college-level classes in CAP courses.

 

Improve English Skills with English as a Second Language Classes

English as a Second Language (ESL)

ESL classes help non-native speakers gain the communication skills needed for college and careers. These classes are for adult immigrants and refugees. Coursework emphasizes reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
