Centralia College East (CCEast) is teaming up with the Timberland Regional Library to provide an opportunity for East County adults ages 21 and older to earn their high school diplomas this fall.
Thanks to this new partnership, instructors will be available once a week at the Mountain View Library in Randle and the Salkum Library to help students make up missing credits that are keeping them from achieving their high school diplomas.
Two open house events are planned in September to help people get started. A CCEast advisor will be available to review high school transcripts and explain how classes are set up. Potential students should obtain an official copy of their high school transcripts from the last school attended and bring that with them to the open house.
- 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, Mountain View Library, Randle
- 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13, Salkum Library
“Students can work online at home or in the library and only need to come to class once a week to meet with the instructor to get additional support and ask questions,” explained Lynn Schinnell, program manager at CCEast. “It’s a great opportunity for students to earn their high school diploma on their own time. And, it’s very affordable.”
The cost of the classes is $25 per quarter. Low-income tuition waivers are available.
Interested students are encouraged to attend one of the open houses. Those who are unable to attend can call Centralia College East at 360-496-5022 to set up an appointment with an advisor.
