High School Equivalency (HSE)

In Literacy Alliance HSE classes, adults prepare to take the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), which replaced the GED exam in Indiana, or study to meet other educational goals.

Students take a skills assessment when they enter the program.  With the assessment results, a teacher creates an individualized program of study. Tutors are also available to work with students. Free childcare and transportation assistance are available at some classes.

To get started, come to an intake.  Or call our office at 260- 426-7323 for more information. Our classes are busy places and staff members need to give their full attention to the adults who are there to study. We will not be able to get all of the information that we need or to answer all of your questions if you just drop in.

In Pre-HSE classes, adult learners work on their basic reading, math, and language skills.  Class work is done on computers, using powerful online resources like Mindplay and Kahn Academy.  Tutors are available to work with students.

Many PreHSE students are preparing for the HSE diploma.  If they are, their study plan includes improving their basic skills to where they can graduate to an HSE class.  And many PreHSE students work to reach other educational goals.

The Literacy Alliance matches volunteer tutors with adult students who are struggling with reading.  Once matched, students and tutors set learning objectives that help students achieve their educational goals.  They meet at least once a week and often study at various branches of the Allen County Public Library.
