High School Diploma Online Courses

  • Earn your high school diploma from the comfort of your home on your schedule. Classes are online and can be completed at your own pace.

    Unlike some online programs, with Lexington One you are more than just a student number, and our teachers are available to help you with your studies. Our teachers will assist you with studying, taking tests, and other activities necessary for the completion of your courses. There is a $25 registration fee and a $50 charge for each course. Diploma classes are open to anyone 17 years or older who is not currently enrolled in public school and has previously earned a minimum of 17 credits towards a SC High School Diploma. Once a student has completed the high school diploma requirements, a SC High School Diploma will be awarded.

    Lexington One Adult Education utilizes Edgenuity for its coursework. Students will go through an orientation process to make sure they understand how to use the platform. Once entered into a course, students will be expected to complete the coursework by the target date. Courses not finished by the target date will be closed and the student will have to start the course over and pay for the repeat course. Edgenuity is an internet based program, therefore can be accessed from any computer with internet access. If your internet access at home is limited, remember our lab is available, as well as the local libraries. Center hours are posted HERE. Occasionally the Center closes according to the Lexington One School Calendar or GED testing at our location. Closings are posted on the Edgenuity announcement board. It is expected that all students read the announcements in Edgenuity.
