Grainger County Adult High School


Gina Hankins, Teacher


The Grainger County Adult High School was started in 1993 under the guidance of the Director of Schools and Grainger County Board of Education due to the high number of adults in the county without high school diplomas.


Any adult 18 years or older who has not earned their high school diploma is eligible for this program. Students may earn all or a portion of the required credits necessary for graduation. Graduation requirements are based on the year the student actually entered high school, not the current requirements.


The Grainger County Adult High School has flexible scheduling for both day and night classes. Hours are 8 am to 3 pm Monday thru Friday with night classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 7 pm.


An early learning center is also available for children of student’s ages 6 weeks through preschool.


Free/reduced/paid breakfast and lunch are available for qualifying students.


There is a graduation ceremony, complete with caps and gowns, at the end of the school year.


ACT prep, FAFSA, college applications, etc are also available.


Workforce Investment Act is offered to enhance students with job related skills.


The Grainger County Adult High School coordinates with other agencies including, Child and Family Services, Douglas-Cherokee, Grainger County Health Department, etc to provide students with outside support.
