Paramount Adult School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).  Because WASC is one of the six regional accrediting organizations approved by the U.S. Department of Education, the WASC seal of approval carries weight with students, parents, faculty, and fellow schools.  WASC allows only accredited institutions to use their seal:


Having met the stringent requirements based on voluntary, non-government self-regulation and peer review as well as standards of good practice, Paramount Adult School is proud to display the WASC seal on our homepage, other publications, and in other venues. 




Counseling Technicians
They assess your needs and goals and place you accordingly.  If you are here for the High School Diploma program, your transcripts are evaluated and you are called once this is completed to give you a copy of the credit evaluation for your records.  The technicians are also in charge of administering tests in our testing lab.



Registration Information

Our classes are offered every semester (See our schedule page). Current students get priority to re-register. Then, we have open registration for new or returning students. Space is limited for all of our classes. When classes get full, students are placed on a waiting list.
