Lewiston, Auburn provide options to adults seeking high school credential
A Lewiston Adult Education graduate and children head to the gym for commencement ceremonies in June 2018.
Lewiston Adult Education and Auburn Adult & Community Education are offering a free program for adults looking to get their high school credential.
The adult education programs both give the High School Equivalency test, the HiSET, which has replaced the GED as Maine’s high school equivalency exam. It consists of five subtests on a computer: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. People who are at least 17 years old and not enrolled in school may take the HiSET.
HiSET exam preparation and testing are free. There are several convenient locations in Lewiston and Auburn. The Adult Learning Centers, which are located in the lower level of Longley School on 145 Birch St. in Lewiston and 4th floor of Auburn City Hall on 60 Court Street are two locations. The third is Auburn Adult Ed’s office at Edward Little High School on 77 Harris St. in Auburn, which gives testing and lessons in the evening.
For more information, contact Auburn Adult & Community Education at 207-333-6661 or Lewiston’s Adult Learning Center at 207-784-2928.
