College and Career Readiness
Earning my High School Equivalency Diploma (HiSET)
Our College and Career Readiness (CCR) classes are designed to help students of all skill levels prepare to earn a high school equivalency diploma (HiSET, formerly the GED), and transition to various college and career pathways. We offer classes in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies.
Increasing my math, reading, and/or writing skills
Students looking to increase their skills in math, reading, and writing can take our free College & Career Readiness (CCR) classes even if they are not seeking to earn a high school equivalency. This is a good option for students planning to attend college who would like to brush up on their skills. Additionally, the program offers college placement test prep classes on a regular basis.
What are classes like?
All classes in the Adult Education Program are structured and follow a specific curriculum designed to help any student advance and prepare for the high school equivalency exam or college readiness. After you complete a short placement test, which is designed to determine your academic level in reading, writing, and math, our staff will help you understand your test scores and determine which courses will work for you. You will choose the courses that best fit your needs, interests, and schedule. Typically, students come to class for 3-9 hours per week, and there are opportunities to attend labs (to work one-to-one with a tutor) as well!
