Adult students are welcome to attend ABC Adult School for credit recovery towards a high school diploma, to prepare for a High School Equivalency test, or to improve basic skills. Adults should come to the Cuesta Main Office with picture identification, official transcripts and $5 lab fee (cash or credit card) to register and begin their journey of “learning for life.” A counselor will help students determine the best educational path and create a custom study plan. All new adult students must meet with a counselor during the enrollment process. Concurrent students who attend high schools may take adult school courses with parent or guardian permission on the advisement of their high school counselor. High school students may only be referred for failed courses or credit deficiencies. Concurrent high school students must bring their concurrent enrollment form, class schedule and photo identification to enroll.
