High School Equivalency (HSE)

(Formerly Called GED)

This program offers the student the opportunity to work and study at their own pace to prepare for the HiSet tests.  After the student has successfully passed all five HiSet tests, they will earn a general education diploma.  This class is also a good option for students who may be older and/or may not have acquired any countable credits while in high school. We have found in-person class most effective but some limited online options are also available.

Open to ages 16 and up.  If the student is a minor, additional paperwork must be completed. An orientation and initial testing is required for all registrants.

In-person HSE class times:

Day Class TTh 9:00am to 12:00pm


Evening Class MW 4:00pm to 7:00pm (limited online options are available).
