ACC Educational Foundation & HSE Academy
Education that Elevates

29 Million adults ages 18+ do not have a high school diploma!  

We provide learning that elevates the lives of non-high school graduates and enriches the communities we serve. We do so by offering you a high quality High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation and testing program.  Our program is 100% FREE to our students, including the costs to take the exam (approximately $350).

We know education is vital for success. Yet about 1 in 4 of us living in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties lacks a high school diploma. In Orange County, it’s 1 in 5.

But here’s the hard fact. A high school credential is vital for success. It can help you get higher pay, find better jobs, pursue college and more.

That's where the ACCEF HSE Academies come in. Through our HSE Academies and scholarship support, we offer you a second chance to help prepare you for better jobs or higher education opportunities. Let us help you get to the next level in life.

HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY (HSE) PROGRAM

Through our HSE Academies, we offer a top-notch high school equivalency test preparation program designed to help you do your best on the HSE exam. The HSE exam is recognized by the State of California as an equivalent to a high school diploma.

We provide live class instruction and teacher-led discussions in a safe, comfortable classroom environment at various locations around Southern California. We also offer one-on-one tutoring, workshops, online resources, practice tests, and computers for self-paced learning - all at NO COST to the student, including testing fees!

Over the years, we have helped thousands of people obtain their HSE. We can help you succeed, too.
