Students are given pre-tests to determine whether or not you are ready to take the actual Official Tests or may need some preparation work. All services and tests are FREE.

You must meet with us for an Intake Session before starting a HiSET program, so be sure to contact us.

All Official Tests are administered by Scarborough Adult Learning Center  at Scarboorugh High School, by appointment only.
