College of The Albemarle’s (COA) High School Equivalency (HSE) is designed for adult students who test above a 9th grade level in math and reading but haven’t obtained a high school diploma.
This program will prepare you to successfully pass the official standardized high school equivalency test. By passing the high school equivalency test, you’ll become eligible for a North Carolina Equivalency Diploma, which is nationally recognized as equivalent to a traditional high school diploma.
The HSE program includes:
- Instruction in social studies, science, literature/writing and mathematics.
- Day and evening classes, both on and off campus.
- Free use of books and materials.
Seating is limited so register early.
