Adult Diploma Program

The Adult Diploma Program provides job training and a new pathway for Ohio adults, ages 22 or older, to earn a high school diploma AND industry credentials aligned to one of Ohio’s in-demand jobs. The focus of this program is on entering an industry credential class and meeting the requirements to pass and earn the class certification.

Prior to entering the certification class the student will attend a WorkKeys Prep class to prepare him/her for the WorkKeys test. The required scores on this test must be met in order for the student to be placed into a certification class. The student is not taking tests to pass the GED®, HISET® or TASC®.

Great Oaks will hold registrations for admission into the Adult Diploma Program periodically throughout the school year. Students are required to first email Kim Barron at Once this step is complete, the student will be given further instruction on how to register for the program.

Please note that during the 2019-20 school year, Great Oaks will be offering the following in-demand Adult Diploma certifications: State Tested Nursing Assistant (STNA), Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (CCMA), Phlebotomy, Health Unit Coordinator (HUC), Pharmacy Technician and Welding.
