The HiSET exam is a five-part test that is used to issue a high school equivalency credential. The exam allows you to show you have the same academic knowledge and skills as a high school graduate. Taking the exam can help you do lots of different things, like:

– Further your education
– Help you advance in your career
– Join the military
– Meet federal education requirements

Passing scores show you can perform at a level consistent with high school equivalency. Information from the exam also helps to identify areas in which you are career and college ready, as well as areas in which additional preparation may be needed.

Call Anne and schedule for your Orientation. There is no charge for your HiSET if you have a valid Maine ID.
