Versión en español / Spanish version

Do you dream of attending a university in the US but first need your official high school diploma?
The HS21 + program is an opportunity to achieve your educational goals in a practical way, free of charge.

1. What is the HS21 + program in Spanish?
HS21+ allows you the opportunity to finish high school by obtaining an official degree recognized by the state of Washington. The only requirement for enrollment is that you are 21 years or older. This program is offered in collaboration with RTC (Renton Technical College) and Goodwill.

2. What is the difference between this HS21 + program in Spanish and the GED?

The HS21 + program is equivalent to the GED but the path to accreditation is different. HS21+ offers credit for previous knowledge and life-skills as well through classes, homework, essays etc. HS21 + is a less academic program and you do not have to pass the 4 GED exams.

3. How does registration work and what should I bring to register?
Preregistration is required, please call  425-369-3443 or email us to espanol@kcls.org if you wish to be included in the waitlist. We follow the RTC academic calendar. Enrollment is at the Bellevue Library during the first week of school. Classes are held Tuesdays from 9 am to 11 am. Students are required to meet with the teacher some Thursdays by appointment only. You will have to bring your photo ID and any certificates or proof of classes you have previously attended in your country or the US as well as proof of knowledge acquired for work (CPR certificate, food handler card, etc.).

4. Does it have any cost?
No, like all the programs we offer at the KCLS libraries this program is free.
