High School Equivalency(known as either HiSET, GED, or TASC)
Test Preparation Classes
The HiSET Test Preparation program is for students who want to earn a high school equivalency credential. The HiSET classes are interactive, self-paced learning environments in an instructional lab setting. Students receive individual designed lessons, as well as whole group and small group instruction. This class focuses on test preparation on all of the high school equivalency subjects: Language Arts, Writing, Science, Social Science, and mathematics; as well as valuable test taking strategies. Students will take official practice tests on all 5 subjects to gauge readiness for the actual exams. As part of the instructional support available, students may attend the math lab for more intensive math instruction.
