High School Completion
Check it out Session 3.27
with Allen Lampert, Sanford Community Adult Education
Does the idea of going back to school excite you or intimidate you? Maybe both! That’s perfectly normal and completely expected. It’s not as scary as you may think. It may feel like there are too many barriers to conquer, but that’s just not true.
SCAE has small classes, great teachers and lots of support systems. Before you even set foot in a class, we have an assessment (it’s not a test!) we give you so that we can figure out together what’s the best route for you to take toward getting your high school diploma.
If you’re thinking about going back to school, register for one of these one-night sessions! We’ll talk about the CASAS assessment, high school diploma requirements, the HiSET testing, our College Transitions program, our childcare services, transportation possibilities and more.
