Adult school classes help adults prepare to successfully complete any of the three High School Equivalency tests. These classes are often a fast track for adults who want to obtain the certificate that is equivalent to a high school diploma as quickly as possible.
High School Equivalency Tests:
California has approved the use of three high school equivalency tests (GED®, HiSET®, and TASC™) for students 18 years old and older, and 17 years old in some instances, for the purpose of receiving a California High School Equivalency Certificate.
For more information regarding HSE exams, please see the attached informational flier.
