HiSET (High School Completion)
If you’re an adult without a high school diploma, the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) could be your route to improved career prospects, a college education, and increased earnings potential. HiSET replaces GED in Maine. Adult High School Diploma programs are central to the mission and tradition of Maine Adult Education. These are secondary educational offerings that lead to a high school diploma. Join other students who have recently completed the program. Get your diploma and get one step closer to achieving your life’s goals! Call the Adult Education Coordinator at (207) 865-6171 to register. Registration is FREE.
