Upcoming Events:

Register NOW for our new Academic Trimester & Semester!

Check out our course listings for all the amazing opportunities we offer...over a dozen new classes and workshops have been added!!!

  High School Completion

 

Students seeking to complete their high school credentials must set up an appointment at the Adult Education office to register for classes.  We will help you design a program to complete graduation requirements. Diploma classes are available during the daytime and evening.  Credits from other schools or sources will be reviewed for acceptance.  Credit may be awarded for military experience, job training, homemaking, and volunteer experience.  Upon graduation you will receive a Presque Isle High School diploma.

College Transitions Program

College Transitions is a comprehensive program of study leading to enrollment and success in a post-secondary institution.  The program includes career planning, case management and data collection; instruction in college preparation coursework; and the development of a peer cohort and/or coaching system.  Adults who are studying to earn high school diplomas receive help in transitioning to college, and adults who have high school diplomas receive preparatory support for college.  Counseling, mentoring and support services are provided to enable these adults to successfully transition to college and earn degrees.

 

ETS® High School Equivalency Test

The Educational Testing Service is pleased to announce that as of January 2014, a more accessible high school equivalency test is available.  The HiSET® examis the first alternative to the GED test since 1942 and includes elements that are critical to providing educational opportunities for those who need a second chance to succeed.  HiSET® prep classes are strongly recommended and the HiSET® pre-tests are required.  Tests are at no cost to Maine residents. The HiSET® exam measures students in the same content areas as the GED test.

 

Adult Basic Education (ABE)

Adult Basic Education courses are designed for adults who wish to improve basic reading, writing, or math skills.  We have an open Learning Lab where instructors will work with students in small groups or individually.

 

English as a Second Language (ESL)

Individual tutoring is available for persons who do not speak English as their first language and who would like to acquire skills in conversational English and writing.
