High School Equivalency (HSE) preparation is provided by Keystone for residents who live in Montgomery County and along the Montgomery/Bucks county line. Instruction is offered through in person classes in Souderton, remote learning via Zoom, and remote or in person tutoring. There are two testing options for attaining a diploma in Pennsylvania: GED and HiSET.

Components of the HSE preparation class include reading comprehension, grammar, composition, math, science, and social studies. The coursework prepares students for either exam.

Our HSE instruction is free and part of our Title II, Pennsylvania Department of Education funded program. Potential students must first complete intake, orientation, and assessment before being placed into class.

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.

HiSET is a computer-based OR paper-based exam. Test takers must schedule and take the HiSET in person at an approved testing center or remotely through https://hiset.ets.org/.

GED is a computer-based exam. Test takers may schedule and take the GED in person at an approved testing center or remotely through https://ged.com/.

For more information about the specific high school equivalency tests, please visit the GED and/or HiSET websites.
