    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)842-2546 or e-mail her at twoody1@waynesville.k12.mo.us.
