High School Diploma for Adults, Athletes & All Ages

Whether you’re a traditional age high school student or an adult looking for a second chance at education, we can help you earn your high school diploma affordably, online, and at your own pace. While our 60,000+ high schools students are diverse, they have one thing in common: they’ve chosen to earn their high school diploma on their own terms with Penn Foster.

Traditional Age Students

Whether you experience bullying, have a family to support, or just struggle in a classroom environment, Penn Foster allows you to work toward your high school diploma online. With the help of experienced instructors and success coaches as well as our student community, you can get the support of a classroom setting from home. Whether you are just starting high school, or you have already completed several credits, we can help!
