Adult High School Diploma Program

The Adult High School Diploma Program offers classes to earn credits to complete adult high school requirements and earn a diploma. Students must be ages 16 and older and live or work in N.H to register for an Adult Diploma class with Salem Continuing Education.  New students will be asked to provide a transcript for review and meet with the Director to create a plan for completing the required classes for graduation.


Memoirs and Memories: Crafting Personal Narratives
In "Memoirs and Memories: Crafting Personal Narratives," students will embark on a journey of self-discovery and creative expression through the art of memoir writing. This course will explore the techniques and structures of compelling memoirs, examining renowned works to understand how authors vividly capture their life experiences. Students will engage in reflective writing exercises, peer workshops, and in-depth discussions to hone their storytelling skills. By delving into their own memories and personal histories, students will learn to craft authentic and powerful narratives, ultimately producing their own memoir pieces that convey the richness and complexity of their unique life stories. Class is worth one English credit.

12 classes:  Monday and Wednesday, July 3- Monday, August 12, 2024 (class on July 10 only will meet remotely), 12:30-3:30 pm, Salem High School- Room A160.
