The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) provides students with a path towards high school completion. It is an ideal program for students who are motivated and self-directed. Students individually work with an assessor to demonstrate high school level mastery of skills. The program takes approximately 9 -12 months to complete and provides the graduate with a high school diploma that is accepted by colleges, jobs, and training programs. A Vernon Regional Adult High School Diploma is awarded upon successful completion of the program.
