College partners with libraries to offer high school completion program

Grays Harbor College has partnered with Timberland Regional Libraries to offer the High School 21+ program at five library branches in Grays Harbor and Pacific counties.

The GHC program is geared toward adults who need to earn their high school diploma.

Through the partnership, adults can now enroll to the program at Timberland libraries in Amanda Park, Elma, Oakville, Westport and Naselle.

Thanks to a state grant, students can also check out Chromebook laptops to take online classes. Students are allowed to keep the laptops however long they need to complete their diploma, according to Diane Smith, associate dean for the college’s transitions programs.

The program takes into account previous learning experience to see which credits each student still needs. This includes school transcripts, employment records, other training or certificates completed, military service and more.
