An Alternative to the High School Diploma

High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) Programs
Out-of-school youth can enroll in one of our general educational development (GED) preparation and skills training programs. GED classes include Youthworks, Teenstart, and the Education and Parenting Skills Center.
GED and HiSET Adult Basic Education (ABE)
Available to anyone 18 years and older with at least an intermediate level of English proficiency, ABE classes help adults improve their education and skills in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. Students take classes to reach personal and career goals, or to prepare for a High School Equivalency exam such as GED or HiSet.
