Are you interested in getting your HSE/GED?
Studies have shown those with no high school diploma or High School Equivalency (more commonly known as a GED) face nearly a third higher unemployment rate than those with a diploma.
They make $10,000 a year less on average than
someone with a diploma or HSE. Test Assessing Secondary Completion, which is the test used to get an HSE, preparation programs are offered at several locations including Northern Catskills Occupational Center in Grand Gorge and the Otsego Area Occupational Center in Milford.
They are also offered at the former Center Street Elementary School at 31 Center Street in Oneonta, as well as in Delhi and Cooperstown. These programs are free of charge to those 21 years and older who do not have a high school diploma or would like to improve their literacy or math skills. Adults who are enrolled and are attending HSE classes may also enroll, free of charge, in Career and Technical Education courses offered at the occupational centers. Enrollment is subject to availability and scheduling.
We also offer the Giving Ready Adults a Study Program. GRASP is a free program to qualifying adult students 21 or older who wish to prepare for the GED exam at home.
