Our goal is to develop educational opportunities that meet the needs of our growing, diverse community. We currently have several programs which provide adults a path to earn their high school diploma. As we experience success and grow we hope to offer a variety of programs beyond those that lead to a high school diploma. Join us in our journey to provide a high-quality, life-long learning experience for all Robertson County residents!
Robertson County Adult High School is to provide Robertson County residents the opportunity to complete their high school diploma in a challenging, yet caring, environment.
Adult High School Program
This program is designed to allow Robertson County adults who never finished the class requirements for a high school diploma to complete the courses necessary to graduate. We will review and evaluate your high school transcripts and plan a program of study with you that will consist of the 22 course credits needed to earn a high school diploma in Tennessee.
There are adults in our county who passed all of their classes in high school but did not pass some of their Gateway Tests in English, Math, or Science. When they were in school students had to pass all three to receive their diploma. For students who have met all graduation requirements except for passing these tests we offer assistance and instruction in the subject area needed, preparing the student to pass the needed Gateway test.
After you contact RCAHS to inquire about our programs, we will schedule a meeting with you to answer any questions and to begin the application process.
Adult and Gateway Program Applicants
In our first meeting we will discuss the program, its requirements, and our expectations of you as a student. We will also let you know what you can expect from us in terms of instruction, assistance, and support. You will fill out several forms in the application packet and you will be given information regarding the background check. Please come to the meeting with your driver’s license, your social security number, and information regarding the schools from which you have received any high school credits, including the dates you attended each school.
We will also fill out a form for your background check. We will schedule this appointment for you and will contact you with the time and date. When you attend this appointment, please take your driver’s license, the form we will provide for you, and your payment for the background check. The background check fee is the only cost you will incur as a student at RCAHS but this fee is nonrefundable.
A few days after your background check appointment we will receive the results. We will contact you with these results and will schedule your orientation to RCAHS (provided you pass the background check.) At this orientation we will complete the paperwork to enroll you and you will begin working on your diploma!
