Admission to the Academic Program and HiSET preparation


Our testing center is currently closed.  LAUSD will follow State guidelines to determine when we will reopen.



All our academic classes are free of charge.  Evans is a Los Angeles Unified School District school and part of the Division of Adult and Career Education.


Minors/Concurent Students


Students that are still attending a regular K-12 school are considered concurrent students.  The Division of Adult and Career Education (DACE) is no longer able to assist students below the age of 18 due to funding requirements.  However, our ACCT program is designed to help students between the ages of 16 and 22.

Individualized Instruction (I.I. Lab, Math Lab, English Lab)

Individualized instruction offers a great opportunity for busy adult students to complete their classes towards a high school diploma while acquiring the skills, self-discipline, and study habits needed to succeed in any post-secondary program, e.g. trade school or college.


There are many advantages to taking classes in a lab:


  • Self-paced program

  • Flexible schedule

  • One-on-one tutoring by a teacher

  • All textbooks are provided


Teacher Directed Classes


Evans also offers high school teacher directed classes.  These classes provide a traditional teacher directed curriculum, allowing students to interact with a teacher and their classmates.  Students are required to attend class, turn in assignments, and take tests in a more structured and rigorous manner.  These classes also provide our students with the opportunity to experience an academic environment similar to college.
