EXETER — HiSET® (High School Equivalency Test) has replaced the GED in NH and many other states. Like the GED, it provides an opportunity to study for and earn a New Hampshire high school equivalency certificate.
Adults who did not complete high school or who need to improve reading, writing, or math skills for personal or professional growth are encouraged to come back to school. Because school may not have been a positive experience the first time, returning to school may sound uncomfortable. Yet many adults from ages 18-75 have taken the courageous step to get their high school equivalency certificate or to improve their writing, reading, and math.
Some people come to school because they need a high school equivalency or other certification to get a job, to advance in a company or to prepare for job training or college. Others want to be able to help their own children but need to improve their own skills first. Whatever the reason, it’s not too late, and Exeter Adult Education staff can help each step of the way.
Adult Academic Skills and HiSET Preparation day classes meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Evening classes meet on Monday and Thursday from 6:30-9:00 p.m. The first session registration for Fall semester is on Mon., September 9 at 9:00 a.m. for day classes and 6:30 p.m. for evening classes. If it’s not possible to attend the registration date, students should call Exeter Adult Education for an appointment.
Academic Skills and HiSET classes are free. All classes meet at the Tuck Learning Campus, Entrance D, 30 Linden Street, Exeter. For more information, call 603-775-8457 or visit adulted.sau16.org.
