Earning a South Carolina High School Diploma via Laurens County Adult Education

Laurens County Adult Education uses VirtualSC, South Carolina's free virtual school, to offer classes to students who need just a few units to earn their high school diplomas. As a small program, we are unable to offer high school classes ourselves at any of our sites.

VirtualSC offers a rigorous curriculum. All courses are college-prep classes. Students who wish to work through our program must have strong reading and computer technology skills, plus the self-discipline and ability to set aside time to work daily and meet deadlines. Students must also be willing to take the initiative to contact the     on-line teachers with questions, concerns, and technology issues that they cannot resolve themselves. 

Prior to enrolling in VirtualSC, a prospective student will need to arrange for an official transcript to be sent to our Director.
