Fall 2018 High School Equivalency Courses

High School Equivalency
This course prepares students to take the Test Assessing Secondary Completion™, or TASC™. The TASC is a national high school equivalency assessment to help individuals address their need for advancement, resulting in a high school equivalency diploma.

Our instructors provide individualized and group instruction in the following areas: math, science, social studies, reading and writing. Using a Predictor Test, we will work with you to assess your test readiness. Students who register for this class must also register for one of the TABE pre-test dates.

Note: In order to enroll in this class you must achieve an eighth grade level on the reading and math assessments. This course requires significant work outside of classroom instruction. Many students will find they need to take this class for more than one semester before they are ready to sit for the exam.

Full payment and a valid Certificate of Residence are required prior to the start of the first class. Limited scholarships are available.
