High School Equivalency Diploma

The High School Equivalency program prepares adults to take a High School Equivalency Diploma Test.

NEW! Students now have two (2) options to earn a high school equivalency diploma:

GED® - Computer-based only; four (4) subjects: Reasoning through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies & Math
