Evans/Hollywood offers all courses required for a California high school diploma. Our high school program uses a college preparation curriculum, offering challenging courses that will enable our students to develop their critical thinking skills, knowledge, and study habits needed to succeed in post-secondary education.
You have three options to earn a high school diploma:
OPTION 1 - Students may take the full 170 credits required for a high school diploma, OR
OPTION 2 - Students may take any of the high school equivalency exams (HiSET or GED) in English + 50 credits in specific subjects, OR
OPTION 3 - Students may take any of the high school equivalency exams (HiSET or GED) in Spanish or French + 70 credits in specific subjects.
Each successfully completed class counts for 5 credits or units of study.
Students may be granted credits from courses previously taken at another accredited secondary or foreign school equivalent to high school level. Credits may also be granted for some paid work experience and for military service.
Please review the Evans Academic page for course specifications.

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.
HiSET, GED Preparation
Our Adult Basic Education Program (ABE) prepares students to take the examinations for a High School Equivalency Certificate, which can be earned by passing any of the following tests: HiSET or GED.
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.
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:
One-on-one tutoring by a teacher
All textbooks are provided
Adult Independent Studies
These classes are specially designed for students who do not have the time to attend school regularly. Students complete the required assignments at home, accessing the instructor through Zoom.
This program requires a lot of discipline from the student to study and do the work at home in a timely manner.
All courses required for a high school diploma are available EXCEPT:
General Science Integrated 3* (K-12 equivalent: Integrated/Coordinated Science 2A)
