High School Equivalency

High School Equivalency (HSE)

In California, adults who left high school before graduation have another way to secure a high school equivalency credential. There are two HSE exams, the HiSET and the GED.  

Through testing, you can demonstrate you have the same skills and knowledge as a high school graduate. And doing so can help you create a whole new future. Once you pass the test, California Department of Education will issue you a high school equivalency certificate.

What HSE programs do you offer?

We offer in-person, self paced model of instruction. Students attend weekly with the teacher to prepare to pass one of the two exams, the HiSET and the GED.

This class focuses on Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Math.  In order to be successful in this program, a seventh-grade reading, writing, and math levels are needed. If a student doesn’t meet the seventh-grade levels they will be enrolled in our Adult Basic Education (ABE) class to build their skills before enrolling in the HSE program.

What are the requirements?

  • The program is open to adults 18 years of age or older.
  • You do not need high school transcripts to pursue a HSE credential.
