Earn a High School Equivalency Diploma

with Emily Nash


The HiSET is designed as a test of the knowledge and skills developed in high school.  It covers material on a range of subjects including English, Writing, Math, Social Studies and Science.  There are a total of 5 tests, taken individually. 

Reach out to us for an informal meeting with one of our student advisors to find out what to expect on the HISET, how to interpret questions, options for studying to pass the tests, and essential strategies, including test taking skills.

After meeting with the advisor, when you are ready, perhaps even the same day, you can start taking the practice tests.  Then your advisor will help you make a plan to pass the HiSET test and earn a diploma that will open doors for you.  We also offer career advising to all our HiSET students.  

People often ask how long it will take and it's impossible to predict until we meet with you and you take some assessments. It takes courage for most people to make the connection with us, but our staff is respectful, patient, kind and competent.  They have a lot of experience assisting people in preparing for the HiSET and/or developing a plan that best meets their goals.  

To learn more, stop in to Ellsworth Adult Education's Learning Center in the Mill Mall, give us a call at 207.664.7110, or email us at  You can also register here 24/7 and we will reach out to you.
