High School Completion

Free

with Michelle Brzezowski, Mt. Desert Island Adult & Community Education

Rolling admissions!

We have two high school completion options for students in the Mt. Desert Island region:

Option One: 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!

 

Option Two: Students who only need a handful of credits to complete their diploma can do so through MDI Adult Education. Some Credits might be earned remotely though an intake and pre-assessment are required. Contact us!

Please note that you should live within our area of Mt. Desert Island so that you can attend in-person sessions when required or desired.

This program is self-paced and will continue throughout the school year, though summer hours, especially in July, are reduced.
