HiSET/GED Classes


Many jobs require a high school diploma or equivalent.  So do Community colleges.  Equivalent means you have passed a test of high school skills.  In Massachusetts you have the choice of two tests, the HiSET or the GED.  We have free classes that will prepare you for either one.  They meet from 6:00 till 8:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.  You’ll study math, reading, writing, science, and social studies.

There are different levels of classes.  When you first come, you’ll take a placement test to see which level is right for you.  Students move to higher levels as their skills get stronger.  When you’re ready, you’ll take the test.  Having a HiSET of GED certificate can make a big difference for your future.

There will be a HiSET/GED information session each Thursday in March at 6:30.  You can call us at (617) 635-5201 to arrange a time to stop by and register and take the placement test.  Our office in English High is open Monday-Thursday from 10:00 a.m. till 7:00 p.m.
