Boothbay Region Adult & Community Education is now an official HiSET ( High School Equivalency Test) Testing site. There are 6 students who have started the testing process. One student, Liam Dyer, earned a perfect score on the Social Studies section of the HiSET. We are VERY proud of his accomplishment.
If you're an adult without a high school diploma, the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET™) could be your route to improved career prospects, further education, and increased earnings potential. HiSET™ replaces the GED in Maine.
HiSET™ provides adults with the opportunity to obtain a high school equivalency certification with the same legal standing as a high school diploma. Through a pre-testing, preparation, and testing program, it allows test-takers to demonstrate proficiency of the academic skills and knowledge expected by employers and post-secondary institutions. HiSET™ consists of five sub tests and is aligned with OCTAE’s College and Career Readiness Standards for Adults:
- Language arts- Reading
- Language Arts- Writing
- Social Studies
