The Monrovia Community Adult School diploma program allows students to earn a WASC accredited high school diploma as an adult. The program offers a rigorous standards-based curriculum in primarily an independent study delivery model, but with small group direct instruction. The program ensures that graduates acquire critical academic skills necessary to continue their education in a postsecondary institution and provides the opportunity to achieve success in the workplace and in life.

If you are a new student to MCAS enrolling in classes to complete your High School Diploma, your first step will be to get an official transcript from the last school you attended and call the front office (626-471- 3035) to schedule an appointment with our counselor, Ms. Macchia. You will meet with Ms. Macchia and the two of you will review your transcripts and create an academic action plan to better reach your goals.

If you are a returning MCAS student working on your High School Diploma and you have already submitted your official transcript to MCAS, you may register for the Academic Lab in person at the Adult School Mountain Avenue campus.

The Monrovia Community Adult School is now a High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) testing center. With the MCAS HiSET Preparation program, our academic lab offers significant online and in classroom resources to help students prepare for the HiSET. The academic lab instructor will provide one-on- one instruction as time permits for students with questions as they work through HiSET preparation materials.

Since MCAS is now a HiSET testing center, we no longer provide test preparation courses for the GED exam.

Students interested in the HiSET Preparation courses must first make an appointment with the MCAS counselor to create an action plan prior to registration. Please call 626-471- 3035 to schedule an appointment.
