High School Equivalency Preparation Classes

We offer classes for High School Equivalency to help prepare students to take the HiSET OR GED exam. Morning classes are held from 9:30 am-12:00pm and evening classes are held from 6:00pm-8:30pm (Monday through Thursday). Students are asked to commit to all scheduled classes to successfully prepare for the HiSET or GED Exam. Please talk to your instructor if you need to change from morning to evening classes. We will work with your schedule as we can. Students must be at least 17 years old and not enrolled in school (16 year olds must have 16 credits and an official drop letter to enroll).
