2020-21 School Year

 

Please check back in July for updates about registering for this distance learning program!

 

The High School Equivalency Test Preparation Program provides students with continuous test preparation and assessment to help successfully pass GED® and HiSET® equivalency tests. Upon successfully passing the GED® or HiSET® tests, students will receive a credential from the State of California. Classes are offered through distance learning (at-home study) using online curriculum. Students are expected to study a minimum of 8 hours each week and will receive regular support and guidance from their instructor through email, video and phone chat.   

 

High School Equivalency or High School Diploma?

GED® and HiSET® test high school knowledge of reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The tests are timed, and they are aligned to Common Core State Standards. Please contact the EGACE Academic Resource and Transitions Office at 916-793-2344 if you would like more information about the differences between earning your high school equivalency credential or completing your high school diploma credits.  

GED® Credential and Testing

The GED® credential is deemed by California law to be the equivalent of a high school diploma for the purposes of most employment and is recognized nationally. Students passing the exam will receive a credential from the California Department of Education (CDE).

EGACE is an approved Pearson VUE testing center. MyGED™ is your start-to-finish tool for the GED® program. Visit the GED.com page to get more information and to register and pay for your GED® test.
