Adult High School (AHS)

Adult High School is a tuition-free distance learning program (meaning you take courses online) that lets you learn at your own pace and on your own schedule. The program consists of core courses required by the public school system along with electives offered by the community college. A work experience component may be offered. An Adult High School diploma is issued locally by Forsyth Tech. There is no cost to the student for courses. The college may charge a graduation or student activities fee. To receive a copy of a diploma or transcript, the student must contact Forsyth Tech.
