Prepare for the HiSET® or the GED® test with the help of instructors
Our classroom instruction is based on best practices in adult education and we target our lessons to help students develop the skills and knowledge they will need to pass a high school equivalency exam. It's okay if you have been out of school for a long time. We work with students at all levels in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science.
