National External Diploma Program® (NEDP)

Adults can demonstrate high school-level skills through completing a portfolio of life skill and academic tasks, anywhere they have access to the internet.

What I learn in the NEDP, I use every day. It is a complete life changer.

The NEDP is a hands-on learning program that assesses the high school level skills of adults and out-of-school youth. The NEDP evaluates the reading, writing, math, and workforce readiness skills with real-world relevance.

  • Assesses high school-level skills awarding a traditional diploma so graduates can meet their academic and career goals
  • Designed for self-directed out-of-school youth and adults with life and work experiences and a general familiarity with the computer
  • Offers flexible scheduling and confidentiality
  • Includes tasks for in-demand career and lifelong learning experiences in Financial Literacy, Health Literacy, Civic Literacy, Geography, History, Science, and Twenty-First Century Workplace

The program is excellent for busy people with full-time schedules. Great assessments that teach you about everyday life and helpful tools for future goals. Just like anything else with hard work and dedication, you can achieve your goal.
