SBCC Hosts 8th Annual Adult High School Graduation

High School and GED Certificates Awarded to Nontraditional Graduates

WHAT: Eighth Annual Adult High School and GED Graduation organized by Santa Barbara City College Continuing Education Division

WHO: Nontraditional adult students (older adults, at-risk youth, re-entry students, single parents, immigrants)

WHEN: Friday, June 18, 2010, from 6 – 7 p.m.

WHERE: Santa Barbara City College, 721 Cliff Drive, Santa Barbara

Student Services Plaza, East Campus

WHY: To honor Adult High School and GED students who will receive their diploma or GED certificate for the 2009-2010 academic year.

Background Information:

• The eighth annual ceremony is organized by SBCC Continuing Education Student Services and the Adult High School program. Approximately 100 Adult High School students and GED students will participate in this year’s ceremony to receive their diplomas or certificates. Students work with their teachers, advisors and counselors throughout the year towards the completion of the academic and personal goals.

• The SBCC Adult High School and GED programs are the only avenue for some of the students to complete their secondary education. The graduating class represents a multitude of backgrounds from single parents to others who were unsuccessful in high school to those returning from incarceration. For many of these students, this may be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a graduation celebration. For some of the students, earning their diploma or certificate is a milestone and provides an incentive to focus on continuing their post-secondary education.
