Option Two: Students who successfully complete the HiSET® (think: GED®) will be awarded a High School Equivalency Diploma which affords the student the same rights and privileges as a credit-bearing diploma. A preparation plan can be done remotely under teacher guidance though an intake, pre-assessments, and practice tests are required. Contact us!
