High School Equivalency (GED & HiSET) Program Overview
We have a comprehensive program to earn your high school equivalency diploma. Two exam options are available at our center: GED and HiSET. Our program is designed for success. At the DAEC, students master one or two subjects at a time before moving on to others. This focused learning yields higher test scores and quicker completion.
The GED is a nationally recognized high school equivalency diploma. You must pass the following four subject computer-based tests in order to obtain your Colorado High School Equivalency Diploma: mathematical reasoning, reasoning through language arts, science and social studies. We care about your next steps in life and our GED classes will help you get there.
The HiSET from Educational Testing Services (ETS) is a newer way to earn your high school equivalency state-issued credential. You must pass the following five subject tests in order to obtain your Colorado High School Equivalency Diploma: mathematics, language arts – reading, language arts – writing, science and social studies. We offer paper-based HiSET exams, providing an alternative to computer-based testing.
Our courses are designed to meet the needs of each individual student, so call us now and let’s get you enrolled.
Special Note on GED Exams
Students who previously tested between 145 and 150 with a non-pass on a GED exam are now officially considered passers in that subject! GED Testing Service lowered the passing score from 150 to 145 in all 4 subjects, and these new lower pass scores are retroactive, starting January 1, 2014.
