HIGH SCHOOL EQUIVALENCY ACADEMIES (HSE ACADEMIES)

At the ACC Educational Foundation, we are dedicated to making a direct impact in the lives of non-high school graduates in the communities we serve. We do this by offering you the high quality HSE preparation program at no cost to you.

The HSE is a nationally recognized certificate that is equivalent to a high school diploma. The HSE exam consists of five tests over two days:  Writing, Social Studies, Science, Mathematics and Reading.

Through our HSE Academies, we are here to do everything we can to help you do your best on the California HiSET® exam. This is one of the three HSE exams adopted by the state in 2014. Our HSE Academies are solely dedicated to help prepare you to successfully pass the HiSET®. When you pass this exam, you earn your high school equivalency certificate.

Here's a few people who obtained their HSE (GED):  

Peter Jennings, ABC News Anchor;  Mary Lou Retton, Medal-winning Olympic gymnast;  Chris Rock, Comedian;  Mark Wahlberg, Actor and Musician, Dave Thomas, Founder Wendy's Restaurants.

Our unique HSE Academies are designed to teach you exactly what you need to know to achieve a passing score and obtain your HSE certificate, which is equivalent to a high school diploma. The program is accelerated to help our students get to the next level in their life as soon as possible. This could be pursuing higher education, a better job opportunity or simply that personal goal to get your credential.

Passing the HSE exam does not take extra skills that are beyond what is taught in high school. You can do this! On average most students who go through one of our HSE Academies complete their preparation within 40 to 55 days in class. More importantly, the vast majority of our program participants pass their HSE!

And remember, you can attend our HSE Academies at no cost. This includes no-cost in-class instruction, materials and testing fees. 

What Is Expected of You

Every student who is applying to one of the Ascensus Foundation’s HSE Academies must attend a scheduled orientation and take a preliminary assessment before being officially enrolled.

Once enrolled, we expect every student to attend class every day. Attendance is crucial for you to get the most out of the program and to best prepare you to pass the HSE.

What You Can Expect From Our Team

You can expect instructors who are approachable, knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. Most of all, you will have personal access to educators who are passionate about what they do and who care about you and your success.

Along with live in-class teaching, our instructors are available for requested one-on-one tutoring time if you need more individual help or guidance. They will also keep you regularly up to date on your progress and success so you always know where you stand.

Additionally, we provide access to technology – like computers and Internet – that is available to you in the classrooms for open lab study time. And you will have access to a library and a host of materials you need.
