The High School Equivalency program provides academic instruction and test preparation in order to assist students to achieve their NYS high school equivalency diploma. Teachers provide instruction in writing, grammar, math, and reading content. The official NYS Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC™) NYS TASC™ replaced the GED® (General Educational Development) in 2014. Additionally, students are assigned time in the ATTAIN computer lab where they re-mediate their weak areas and work on test preparation through computer aided instruction.
The Academic Skills Preparation is a program designed to develop reading and math skills if you do not meet the entry-level requirements for College Prep, Career Prep, or the Business Education programs. The two modules are sequential, and computer-assisted learning is an essential part of this program.
