Due to COVID-19, our programs are operating remotely and with different procedures than what may be outlined below. For more information, please click here to see our updated schedule.
High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation is provided by Keystone for those interested in attaining a high school equivalency diploma. Instruction is offered through face-to-face classes in Souderton, one-to-one tutoring at local libraries, and distance learning. There are two testing options for attaining a diploma in Pennsylvania: GED and HiSET.
Components of the HSE preparation class include reading comprehension, composition, math, science, and social studies. The class will prepare students for either exam.
All classes are FREE and provided through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Adult Basic and Literacy Education division. Potential students must first attend orientation, where they will learn about the program, set goals, and be assessed for placement into class. For students who are not yet HSE ready, Keystone provides pre-high school equivalency as well as basic reading and math instruction.
It is important to note that ANY passing GED subject tests taken prior to January 1, 2014 will NOT count towards the current GED test. GED is a computer-based exam. Test takers must schedule and take the GED at an approved testing center. Paper versions are not available unless a test taker meets the criteria for a test accommodation.
HiSET is a computer-based OR paper-based exam. Test takers must schedule and take the HiSET at an approved testing center.
To reduce the risk of spreading the virus, Adult Education classes in High School Equivalency, ESL, and ESL tutoring are now being conducted through distance learning. Family Literacy and Citizenship classes will resume at a later date. For details, click here.
