High School Completion Programs

Students 17 years of age or older who have not completed their high school education may be eligible to earn a diploma through Kirkwood’s High School Completion program. More than 50 independent study, online and structured courses are offered at Kirkwood learning centers located in the seven-county service area.

Computers are available to provide students with coursework, enrichment activities and vocational experience. Students are also encouraged to take interest and career assessment inventories, tour program facilities on the main campus, and explore other career and academic resources as part of their high school experience.

Preparation and testing for the Iowa High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) are also available at Kirkwood learning centers. Students may enroll in classes, study independently, work with a teacher or tutor, use HSED instructional software, and view instructional videos to learn or review HSED competencies.
