To get started in our program, you must attend and complete an orientation. You must attend all sessions of orientation without missing a session, being late or leaving early. After you have completed orientation, you will begin your classes and are enrolled in the program. Once you are enrolled in the class you choose to attend, you will be asked to commit to attend so many hours per week, depending on the time of the class.
Orientation will be offered once every month.
Orientation will be on a first come bases only.
The orientation will include all the initial testing and assessments that is needed to determine what you may need help with, how much, and where to begin. This will let your teachers know what areas you may want to concentrate on first. The teachers will show you what books you'll use; help you get started on the computers to work on specific areas; and re-test you often to show you your progress.
The High School Equivalency program operates all year, although we do follow the Jefferson City Public School calendar during the school year. When the school district is closed for breaks, holidays or inclement weather, we are also closed.
The new HiSet exam is a computer based test. You can find out information on how to register, the testing schedule and locatons at the hiset website listed below:
