Clearwater Adult Education Center

To Prepare our Students for the Workforce


The Adult High School provides a way for persons who dropped out of high school for various reasons to return and earn the credits they need for their high school diplomas. The State requires a student to complete either an 18 or 24 credit diploma. The Adult High School offers students a chance to earn those credits at their own pace with a flexible schedule. The students must meet the graduation requirements maintaining a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and must pass the FCAT exams to receive a high school diploma. Clearwater Adult is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to issue standard high school diplomas. 
There is a $30.00 per term tuition fee.  There are three terms in a calendar year. 
Term 1:  August 10 - November 30, Term 2:  December 1 - March 30, Term 3: April 3 - July 20.  
Students may enter at any time. 
Students must meet the same academic requirements as traditional daytime high school students, including:
  1. 2.0 GPA
  2. Must pass the State of Florida required testing.
  3. Meet content requirements and elective requirements (14 content and 4 or 10 elective credits)
