Are you considering getting your high school equivalency diploma?

Congratulations on taking the first step towards your educational goals! Here is some important information to help you understand our program goals and potential outcomes. Our classes are set-up for individual lessons. Teachers work with students in the area of most need.

Because every student has different needs it is impossible to give a timeline of when one will finish the preparation program. The more time and effort one puts into the program and one's starting skill level help determine when an individual is ready to take the HiSET test. To make significant gains toward getting a high school equivalency diploma is important to attend class each night that we have class.

There is no cost associated with our program. The AEL program is free to everyone.  When you are ready to take the HISET test, there is a cost associated with it. We do not administer the test to you; we only prepare you to take the test.

Already have your high school diploma but want to score better on the ASVAB or college entrance exams, or job related testing? Our AEL program can assess your weak areas and help you focus on those specific skills and learn the concepts needed to score higher.

There are a few instances when classes are cancelled. Any day Waynesville is out of school due to holiday or weather, AEL classes are also cancelled. 

If you have further questions, do not hesitate to call Tina Woody at (573)842-2150 or e-mail her at twoody@waynesville.k12.mo.us.
 

High School Equivalency

Missouri Chooses New High School Equivalency Test

Current GED® test expires at end of 2013

 

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has selected a new high school equivalency test. The state's current test, the GED®, is set to expire at the end of 2013.

Beginning January 2014, Missouri's new high school equivalency test will be the HiSET test developed by Educational Testing Service (ETS).

The cost of the new test will be $95, which includes a $60 registration fee for the cost of the test and $7 for each of the five test sections to cover the costs of administering the test. Because examinees do not have to complete the entire test at one time, they can take the test in sections.

The $60 registration fee will allow individuals to test three times during a 12-month period. Examinees who do not pass the test the first time can retake the entire test or any of the test sections two more times within the 12-month period by paying an additional $7-per-section fee.

Testing sites for the new exam are still being determined. Additional information about the test will be provided at www.hse.mo.gov as it becomes available.

In March 2011, the American Council on Education GED Testing Services (GEDTS) and Pearson announced plans to create a for-profit organization to develop a new computer-based high school equivalency test to replace the current GED test in January 2014. Shortly after the announcement, GEDTS revealed that the price of its new test would be $120, not including any state administrative fees.

As a result, the Department used the state's bid process to choose Educational Testing Service to provide a new high school equivalency test for Missouri at a cost of $95.

Missourians wanting to obtain their high school equivalency before the current GED test expires must apply by September 1, 2013. Those who have taken the test but not passed all the test sections have until November 4, 2013, to apply to retest.

Individuals who have taken the test but not scored well enough on all sections of the test to receive their certificate have until the end of the year to pass the exam. If they do not pass the GED® by January 1, 2014, scores from the current test sections will not transfer to the new one.
