High School Equivalency


Adult Education Classes

Who may attend adult education classes?

  • Students who have not achieved their high school diploma from a school.
  • Students who have already achieved their high school diploma, but who now want to continue their education by brushing up their skills for a specific job or skill area, or students who want to work toward a special certification.
  • Students who do not wish to receive a high school diploma, but who want to work toward a specific certification that does not require a high school credential.
  • Students who are working on basic skills in reading, math, and language.

When are classes held?

  • Monday through Thursday from 1:00 to 4:30 PM

What if I have trouble learning?

  • Don’t worry – this is very common, especially after a student has been out of school for an extended period.
  • If a student had an IEP in school, we may be able to incorporate those accommodations into our instruction, and the student may use them while taking the HSE test.
  • We provide assistance to help each student succeed at his or her own pace.
  • Students are not judged against one another.

What are some of the things I will be doing in the adult education program?

  • Fill out forms and discuss your academic goals with the instructor.
  • Complete a locator assessment (very short – designed to help instructors choose the correct testing level for you).
  • Complete TABE testing in reading, math computation, applied math skills, and language.
  • Review the results of testing and discuss your learning plan.
  • Periodically, students will be retested to find out how much progress they have made.
  • When retesting shows enough progress, students take the HSE readiness assessments to see if they are ready to pass the TASC test.
  • Take and pass the TASC test.
  • Receive your high school diploma.
  • Celebrate with us at graduation at the CRC next June.
