High School Equivalency Program 

The purpose of the High School Equivalency Program (HSEP) is to prepare eligible students to pass the high school equivalency exams instead of earning a high school diploma. The HSEP website also provides information about alternative educational opportunities, some are free of charge and others have a fee. We recommend you talk to your school counselor regarding your options.
