Midcoast Hub 7 offers two different pathways to completing a high school credential. Instruction, books, and all test expenses are offered to the student at no cost.
Option I: HiSET
The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) has replaced the GED in Maine, but it serves the same purpose. The HiSET consists of a series of 5 tests in the following subject areas: Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies, and Science.
HiSET preparation is offered in a learning lab format, providing students with the support they need to successfully pass these tests.
Instruction takes place both in the classroom and online, depending on student needs and program capacity. All Hub 7 programs engage the HiSET Academy platform to supplement and support student preparation.
Adults ages 17 and older can reach their education goals with the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET). If you are 16, you can prepare to take the HiSET, and be ready to take the official tests when you turn 17.
The HiSET provides a number of accommodations for test takers with disabilities and health-related needs.
Option II. High School Diploma
Midcoast Hub 7 offers a number of academic courses to meet the requirements for a high school diploma. These include, but are not limited to, English, math, algebra, U.S. History, and elective opportunities.
If you are interested in obtaining your high school credential through one of these pathways, please call your local office to determine which option is the best for you.
