High School Equivalency (Formerly GED)
The HSE program provides adults who did not complete a formal high-school program the opportunity to obtain a High School Diploma issued by the State of New Jersey Department of Education. Students will participate in reading, writing, math, social studies, science, work readiness and basic computer literacy classes. Students who successfully complete the program will be prepared to take the HiSET or TASC assessment to earn a diploma.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
The ESL program helps adults whose first language is not English to improve their English speaking, reading, and writing skills. Students will have opportunities to gain computer skills, work readiness skills, enroll in college, and prepare for career training or employment opportunities. Students may also choose to prepare for the US citizenship test.
