The HiSET is now the high school equivalency test for the State of Maine.
On January 1, 2014 the HiSET replaced the GED as Maine’s high school equivalency exam. The HiSET is designed by ETS and Iowa Testing Programs, two highly respected nonprofit assessment organizations and makers of such tests as GRE, Praxis, SAT and TOEFL among others. It will test your knowledge in five core areas aligned with the Common Core State Standards: Language Arts-Reading, Language Arts-Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. The HiSET will have two passing score cutoffs; one for high school equivalency and the other for college and career readiness.
We offer classes to help you prepare for the HiSET; daytime and evening classes are available. As has always been the case in Maine, there is NO COST for Maine residents to prepare for and take the HiSET.
Please call 207-363-7922 to get started!
If you started the GED but have not yet finished, your passing GED scores will remain valid until12/31/14 and will be combined with HiSET scores to complete your diploma.
