High School Completion

In Ellsworth there are two routes to a high school diploma as an adult.  Both provide a valuable diploma that prepares you for college and other postsecondary and career options.  We offer a cap and gown ceremony with a pomp and circumstance processional and photographer.  All courses required for adults enrolled in our high school completion program are tuition free, convenient and confidential.   To learn more about our programs call 207.664.7110 or email adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org  for a FREE.  When you come to one of our centers you will meet with our student advisor to discuss options for earning a diploma.

 

The Adult High School Diploma gives you the chance to take up where you left off in school.  Core diploma courses are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  These courses are organized in six 5-week blocks.  Taking advantage of this schedule, you can earn several credits or more a year.  You can also earn credits for out of school activities including on-the-job training, work experience and volunteer work.  Most people are a lot closer than they think!

The Maine High School Equivalency Diploma option gives you the chance to demonstrate your knowledge and skills to graduate from high school by taking th High School Equivalency Test (HiSET)  The HiSET includes five tests-Reading, Writing, Social Studies, Science, and Math.  Study only what you need to pass the tests and prepare for the next chapter in your life.  HiSET orientation, pre-testing, and preparation are available daytime and evening hours.  Testing is available by appointment daytime and evening hours.
