The High School Equivalency (HSE) Program is for adults who lack a high school diploma, have good reading skills and need to prepare to earn a high school equivalency certificate. Students will receive integrated instruction in the five areas covered on the GED® test: social studies, science, interpreting literature and the arts, mathematics, and writing skills. Instruction is also offered on the U.S. and Illinois Constitutions, and a test covering these areas must be passed if it was not passed in high school. A math skills class is also offered.

Online classes are available.

Instruction is available in English or Spanish for the integrated High School Equivalency classes.

For program information, call (630) 942-3697. Spanish language assistance is available.
