Prepare for the NEW high school equivalency test through an individualized, self-paced study program, HiSET


The HiSet was developed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the university of Iowa's Iowa Testing Program.  The new HiSET test will provide a more accessible and affordable high school equivalency test.  The California Department of Education has certified this new test and it will give a student a high school equivalency certificate that can be used in gaining employment opportunities and easier access to post-secondary education.


A Pre-HiSet test may be administered to determine readiness for the HiSET test.  Tutorial preparation is provided.  Registration is required prior to testing. Please call (650) 877-8844 to set up an appointment.

Requirements for HiSet testing

  • HiSET test takers must bring a valid photo I.D. to each scheduled test and be prepared to show this to the test proctor: driver's license or DMV issued ID, military ID, U.S. or a foreign government issued ID, U.S. or a foreign government passport, a tribal identification card or an identification card issued by a postsecondary school. The identification must include your name, birth date, signature, photograph and address.
