Adult Basic Education: High School Equivalency/Test of Essential Academic Skills/College Preparation

The High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) provides students the opportunity to earn a high school equivalency diploma. This diploma is recognized as a key to employment opportunities, career advancement, and further education. The test consists of five sections in the areas of mathematics, writing, science, social studies and reading, focusing more on critical thinking and decision-making skills rather than rote memorization of facts. Students may also use this course as preparation for college entry.

Testing options are on computer or with paper and pencil and we’ll prepare you for both. Don’t let fear hold you back! This smaller sized class enables each student to receive individual attention in a comfortable atmosphere. Only test when you feel ready.

The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is the nursing school admission exam and is also required for admission to many other health care study programs. As the TEAS scores the same subjects covered in HiSET preparation we have combined these sessions to address both. Our teachers not only provide group instruction but also individual resources and material for the student’s particular needs. For example, TEAS students receive additional biology and anatomy preparation directed towards the TEAS. Practice testing is a valuable component.
