Preparing To Get Your High School Equivalancy Degree


Welcome to Adult Education (AE)!

If you are ready to make the commitment to finish your high school education through the High School Equivalency (GED/HiSET), we are ready for you. We will help you prepare through classes and personalized instruction and advising. 

Our experienced, professional teachers are friendly and knowledgeable.

Has it been a while since you've been in school? That's OK. We will help you start where you left off.

How long will this take? We work in five-week sessions. However, this does not mean you will be done in five weeks. It all depends on your skill level, attendance and most of all, on your commitment. Some students complete the program in weeks, others may take years! Don't worry - we will be with you every step of the way!

Classes are available in English or Spanish.

If you are 16 or 17, you must bring in your Underage Permission Form signed by the Superintendent of Schools from your last school of attendance before you can participate in our program. These forms are available from the SFCC Testing Center. If you have been homeschooled, the homeschool operator will need to complete the form. A $25 Registration fee covers all of your Adult Education classes for one full semester.

How do I get started?
Orientation for new students is offered every five weeks during the semester. Please call for dates and more information.

What can I expect?

In this program, you will enroll in classes that prepare you for the HSE (High School Equivalency) exams - the GED or the HiSet state approved tests. The Adult Education Department at the Santa Fe Community College also prepares you for college and careers. Once you get your HSE, we help you develop the skills you need to succeed in college and careers.
