Earning a high school credential is one of the best things you can do for your career, your independence, and your family. Study with us to get expert support and specific coaching for your goals. We offer flexible scheduling, excellent teaching, personal encouragement, and accountability. We also provide scholarship opportunities for graduates to continue their college education at A-B Tech. Graduation is held each year in June; make this your year to walk and celebrate!

High School Equivalency tests offered at A-B Tech include GED®and HiSet®. These exams are of equal levels of difficulty, but have some differences. HiSet® tests are offered in a paper and pencil format and cost $15 each. GED® tests are offered on the computer at our secure testing center and cost $20 each.

Adult High School courses are free and are offered online through OdysseyWare software. Students interested in the Adult High School program must submit an official transcript from the school they previously attended in order for prior credits to be evaluated. For the best success, students should have personal access to a computer and the internet. 

We offer classes, independent study labs, and online courses year-round. Typically, students who make progress towards their goals attend at least six hours per week for at least three consecutive months. The more students participate, the sooner they graduate! During enrollment, students take placement tests in English and math to help determine their academic needs. Progress testing is given intermittently to inform students’ study plans and to evaluate the effectiveness of our program’s services. Students may take GED® or HiSet® exams as soon as they are prepared to succeed – no need to wait for group testing sessions or the end of the semester.
