This is where your future begins!  Whether you are looking to complete your high school education (diploma or HiSET) or want to brush off skills for college, this is the first step.  During this scheduled one-on-one meeting, we will walk you through all the registration paperwork, set your personalized schedule and give a clear picture of how our program works and what you can expect.   You will also complete our CASAS intake testing to give us an idea of where you are academically and give us a starting point to set you on your path to a new future. Please plan on the process taking at least 2 hours.  You may bring a parent, spouse or friend with you.

New student registrations are being accepted but will be processed when our office reopens in August.

You will need to bring your Social Security Number and any past transcripts you may have.

HiSET Preparation

Free

with Allison Burns, Lawrence Adult Education

Calendar Jun 8, 2020

If you are at least 17 and left school without a diploma, the HiSET® might be the way for you to earn a high school credential. Accepted by colleges and employers, the HiSET tests allow you to demonstrate your knowledge in five subject areas. Learn about HiSET® preparation classes and testing requirements, take a practice test, and get ready to move forward with your life.

ETS High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) has replaced the GED as Maine’s High School Equivalency Assessment. The HiSET consists of the following five subtests: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics. A passing score on each subject test is a scaled score of 8 out of 20, but learners must achieve a total scaled score of 45 to successfully achieve their high school equivalency diploma. Learners that achieve a scaled score of 15 or higher on each subject test are designated as College and Career Ready.

Testing is computer-based. (Paper-based testing is only available with accommodations through ETS.) There is no fee for Maine residents to prepare for and take the HiSET. We provide HiSET testing, preparation materials, pre-tests, and instruction.

Please call us 453-4200, ext. 3114 or email adulted@msad49.org.

All preparation classes during the summer session are done online due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
