The mission of the Adult Diploma Program  is to prepare our students to be informed responsible and productive citizens. 

Administration and staff are committed to creating an environment which promotes the pursuit of a high school diploma and is responsive to the needs of the individual learner in our diverse coastal community.  Our great challenge is to provide an education for every student who comes to our program and to keep them interested in pursuing a high school diploma until completion.

We assume the responsibility for assisting our students to develop initiative, to have respect for themselves and others, and to appreciate multi-cultural backgrounds and traditions.  We will foster in our students a strong desire to learn and to encourage them to become life-long learners.
