HiSET/Accuplacer Prep Class
with Joe Moore
If you did not earn your high school diploma, the HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) is a test you can take to earn the equivalency of the diploma. The five sections are Math, Writing, Reading, Science and Social Studies. This course helps students prepare to pass the HiSET exam. Students will be given pre-tests to determine if they need to take the HiSET prep class or if they can start the official testing immediately. This class also offers Accuplacer Preparation as part of our College Transitions Program. If you need to boost your Accuplacer score in order to gain admittance to a college such as SMCC, join this free class today.

Students work independently as well as in a small group. We are proud to say that our success rate for this class is extremely high.
