High School Equivalency Exam (HiSET)

In response to Covid-19, we have canceled HiSET exams until further notice.  Please contact HiSET or GED for high school equivalency in-home testing information.

The HiSet is equivalent to the GED and approved by the State of California.  We offer test preparation classes for the HiSET exam at the Adult School. Register for an initial orientation by completing  our pre-registration form and then study at your convenience and work with teachers during our Adult School designated hours.  When you're ready, take the HiSET test online.
