I would like to find out how quickly I can finish high school? How much is it going to cost? When can I begin my studies?
It is possible to finish high school in a single year. Everything depends on how much time you are willing to devote to the study process. You don’t have to wait for a new school year to begin, you can start studying at any time. You have to pay 350 EUR for every class, however you can divide this amount into monthly installments.
Can I apply for school if I have lost the report card from my previous school?
If you don’t have any documents about your previous education, we can request them from your school. Once we receive the documents, we will tell you if you have any missing grades or subjects and then all you will have to do is pass the missing tests and hand in the missing assignments.
If I have already passed one of the national centralized examinations, do I have to do it again?
No, repeating the exam is not necessary. When we issue the certificate, we will write the certificate number and year when the examination was done.
If I have not studied all the subjects that are obligatory at your school can I still apply?
Of course, you can come and study at Riga 1. Distance Education High School. We will complete a progress alignment and you will just have to pass the tests on current and missing secondary school subjects.
