High School Equivalency Preparation

The High School Equivalency program provides academic instruction and test preparation in order to assist students to achieve their NYS high school equivalency diploma. Teacher led instruction is provided in the areas of Writing/Grammar, and Math/Reading in the content areas leading to the official NYS Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™). NYS TASC™ replaced the GED® (General Educational Development) in 2014. Additionally, students are assigned time in the ATTAIN computer lab where they remediate their weak areas and work on test preparation through computer aided instruction.

The HSE program is generally 15 weeks, Monday through Thursday from
9:00 am to 3:00 pm. (Subject to change) TABE Scores required are:
Reading 8.0 - Math 7.0.

You will also be assigned time in the computer lab where you can work in weak areas and prepare for tests. Our programs are geared for your success.
