HiSET (High School Equivalency Test)

Whether you want to pursue a career or attend college, earning a high school equivalency credential is more important than ever.

The HiSET exam is an assessment of skills and knowledge comparable to those of a high school graduate and is an alternative for those who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to finish high school.

These classes are for people who are not currently enrolled in high school or have not received their high school diploma and would like to take steps to complete their education.  We’re here to assist under-educated adults to improve the academic and communication skills related to their work and family lives.  Those who take and pass all five sections of the HiSET earn a Massachusetts High School Equivalency Diploma.

Subjects include:

  • English/Reading
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Math
