High School

Earn your high school diploma, open doors!

Bates offers several programs that help you earn your high school diploma, including High School+, Technical High School and Running Start.

Technical High School and Running Start

Are you ready to get a jump start on your career? You can earn your high school diploma and an associate degree in a world-class career-training program at the same time, tuition free.

High School+ (Adult High School)

If you’re an adult without a diploma, and you’d like to take your career to the next level, then this program might be the right one for you. High School+ is an ability-based program that considers a combination of life experiences and previous high school credits, and helps guide you toward earning your diploma.

Bates Technical College offers classes on campus, online and hybrid. Physical campuses are open to students attending on-campus classes, those with an appointment, and employees. Learn how we keep students and employees healthy and safe on our COVID-19 resource page.
