The under-age GED program was approved by the School Board of Hillsborough County to provide an opportunity for 16/17 year old students with extraordinary circumstances to earn a State of Florida High School Diploma through the GED test. The program targets students who have been unsuccessful in the traditional high school program and are planning to withdraw or have withdrawn. Students who successfully complete this program will be granted an Under-Age GED test waiver to be eligible to take the GED test prior to reaching the age of eighteen.

Adult students 18 years or older can prepare to take the GED test in order to earn a Florida High School Diploma. The GED program is for students who do not have a high school diploma, have legally withdrawn from a traditional K-12 school, and score at the high school level on the placement test. Courses include language arts writing, language arts reading, math, science, and social studies. GED classes are offered in a traditional classroom setting or online.

Adult High School Credit classes are for students who need to earn credit toward a high school diploma. Students must earn 24 credits, pass state required tests, and maintain a 2.0 GPA to earn an adult high school diploma. Enrollment is open-entry/open-exit.
