Diploma Completion: HiSET


with Timothy McKim

If you didn't finish high school, you know that your job choices can be limited. Even with talent and drive, the lack of a high school diploma can limit your opportunities. Increase your lifelong earnings by earning your high school credential.

The HiSET® exam has replaced the GED as Maine’s High School equivalency assessment. If you are an adult without a high school diploma, the HiSET® could be your route to improved career prospects, a college education, and increased earnings potential. To earn a HiSET® credential, you are required to successfully pass five exams in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science. HiSET®exam preparation and testing are free to Maine residents.

Please call our office for your first informational appointment. 288-4703. Rolling admissions, year round.

What Career is Best for Me?


with Anne Patterson

If you are 18 or 80, you could still be asking this question. Take the World of Work Inventory (WOWI). It is an intensive online assessment split into three components. Address your likes and dislikes, your abilities, your work styles, plus your potential to learn new skills as well as adapt. Take the assessment at home or in our office. A report will be generated that aligns job sectors and careers to your current statues, as well as suggestion for further education that would lead to other career opportunities. Meet with the adult ed director to review the report and assist you with your next steps.

This program is free for current adult education diploma and college transition students.
