Policies

Liberty High School has helped thousands of adults earn their high school diploma at home during the past 25 years.

Adult students are successful at Liberty High School because they are able to use our home study, self-paced system that’s supported by qualified high school teachers. Liberty High School teachers are available to assist students every step along the way.

Liberty High School is approved by the Vermont State Board of Education using the same rigorous standards applied in the approval process of Vermont public high schools. According to the 2005-2006 findings of the Education State Rankings, a survey by Morgan Quitno Press, Vermont ranks number one.

A Liberty High School diploma is an acceptable document for admissions to most colleges and universities, colleges of technology and career schools, for induction into the U.S. Armed Forces, and for employment. Please understand, however, that no school can guarantee acceptance into any institution or employment. There are many other factors to consider over which we have no control.
