High School Completion

High School Completeion: HiSET

Free

with Timothy McKim, Mt. Desert Island Adult & Community Education

Calendar Jan 1, 2020

If you didn't finish high school, you know that your job choices can be limited. Even with talent and drive, the lack of a high school diploma can limit your opportunities. Increase your lifelong earnings by earning your high school credential.

The HiSET® exam has replaced the GED as Maine’s High School equivalency assessment. If you are an adult without a high school diploma, the HiSET® could be your route to improved career prospects, a college education, and increased earnings potential. To earn a HiSET® credential, you are required to successfully pass five exams in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science. HiSET®exam preparation and testing are free to Maine residents.

Please call our office for your first informational appointment. 288-4703. Rolling admissions, year round.
