Register now for High School Equivalency and English for Speakers of other Language classes

 

Adult EdCapital Region BOCES to offer dozens of registration opportunities in the coming weeks

 

Interested  in learning the English language? How about finally earning that high school diploma? Capital Region BOCES has a class for you!

BOCES offers free High School Equivalency (HSE) classes and English for Speakers of Other Languages.

HSE classes prepare adults to take the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC). Classes are offered across the Capital Region multiple times a week. A complete listing of class times and locations is available here. TASC replaced the GED a couple of years ago as the only free, state-subsidized assessment leading to a New York state High School Equivalency (HSE) Diploma.

Classes are offered to students 17 years or older who lack a high school diploma and have left school. The instruction is done by a certified teacher in the five areas of study to prepare for the HSE exam.  Click here for a class schedule.

HSE class registration dates and times are available below. Please note that you must call (518) 862-4707 to pre-register for a registration/orientation session!
