HiSET, High School Equivalency Testing replaces the former GED. Students need to be 17 years of age to register with our Student Advisor. No student can graduate with the HiSET until their class has graduated. There are five HiSET pretests: science, reading, writing, social studies, and math. Once a student has passed each of these pretests they are able to take the five official HiSET tests. Students struggling in any of the subject areas are enrolled in academic classes. The official test times vary from one hour to 2 hours depending on the subject. Students who are good at testing can earn the HiSET diploma in a relatively short time. We also have a graduation ceremony in June we encourage our successful HiSET and High School diploma students to attend!
How do I achieve a High School diploma?
The first step in achieving a High School diploma is making a call to our Student Advisor and setting up an appointment. The Student Advisor looks at the students past academic transcript to see what classes will be required to earn a diploma. We offer classes in science, reading, writing, social studies, and math. Once you are enrolled and attending classes you earn one credit per 15 week class or 45 hours of seat time. Students need a total of 20 credits to graduate from our Adult Education program. We award our students a High School diploma in June and hold a graduation in their honor!
