    HiSET Test

    The HiSET Test is a high school equivalency test that can give you the credentials that you need for your career or for college. Passing the exam indicates that you have comparable knowledge and skills of a typical high school graduate. The ETS HiSET Exam is similar to the GED Test and the TASC Test, but it’s designed to be more flexible, more accessible, and more affordable.


    The HiSET exam is composed of five subtests in the following subjects:

    • Language Arts — Reading
    • Language Arts — Writing
    • Mathematics
    • Science
    • Social Studies

    You will be signed up for the practice subtest.  Once you demonstrate mastery you will be directed to take the actual HiSet.


    Registering for the Exam

    At SSFAE we are in the process of moving from a Paper Based Testing site to a Computer Based testing site.  If you are ready to take the official HiSet please click on the link below.  HiSet is offering an online version that you may take from home.

    To register for the HiSET please click here 

    Adult Ed Message from Principal  


    To our SSF Adult Education Family

    Hello SSFAE community.  I hope all of you are safe and healthy as we all work through the Covid-19 Pandemic.  As we get ready for the 2020-2021 school year I would like to go over some dates and procedures that will take place in the upcoming weeks.  


    Based on the information that we have today, our first day of school will be Monday, August 17th, 2020 and all instruction will be by distant learning.  We have changed our registration process to a fully online process.  The link will be posted on August 3rd and will be open until August 14th.  Once you register you will be given an appointment time to discuss your academic plan and set a time to take your CASAS test (All students in the ESL, High School Diploma, and HiSet program must take the CASAS).


    As of today we will be operating in a distant learning model for the start of the school year.  This means that all programs will be done using either Zoom or Google classroom, and Edgenuity. You will receive more information about specifics in the upcoming weeks.




    As we get in gear for the 2020/2021 School year I would like to give some program changes and updates.  As I write this message, I do so knowing that information changes every day and I ask that you are patient and flexible as we work through this pandemic.


    Adult Secondary Education


    High School Diploma and HiSet will be done exclusively through Edgenuity.  We will no longer be using textbooks through our learning center.  All students will be assigned courses through the Edgenuity platform. The teacher for this class will also teach the ABE-English class virtually. 


    Students will be required to log in to Edgenuity during our new classroom hours:


    Monday 9:00 am- 1:00 pm

    Tuesday 9:00 am- 1:00 pm

    Wednesday 9:00 am- 1:00 pm

    Thursday 9:00 am 1:00 pm

    Friday 9:00 am- 1:00 pm



    Monday 6:00 pm- 9:00 pm

    Wednesday 6:00 pm 9:00 pm


    Adult Basic Education


    We have added two new classes that we feel will help support the SSFAE community.


    ABE- English

    This class will be taught virtually and will focus on fundamental reading and writing and will use whole group, small group, and individual instruction.  This teacher will teach the ABE- English class and supervise Edgenuity. 

    Students will have access to this class Monday-Friday 9:00 am- 1:00 pm and Monday and Wednesday 6:00 pm- 9:00 pm.


    ABE- Math

    This class will be taught virtually and will deliver math instruction using research-based teaching methods to build essential math, critical thinking, and problem solving skills using whole-group, small-group, and individual instruction.

    This class will be taught on

    Monday and Wednesday from 6:00 pm -9:00 pm.

    SSF Adult Education hosted our annual Job Fair last May 10, 2017. The successful event included 21 different organizations and was attended by over 100 students including our very own ESL and High School Diploma students, Baden High School students, Jefferson Adult School students, and community members. Many of those who attended were not only able to network with a variety of different companies but were offered the opportunity to interview, or even obtain employment! This event would not have been possible without the participation of all the organizations and their representatives which included: Comcast, Molly Maid, Synergy Homecare, New South Parking, Swissport, Embassy Suites, McDonald's, FedEx, Target, ChildCare Careers, Select Staffing, Big 5 Sporting Goods, CDS, Sky Chefs, Skyline College, Spark Point, Full Steam Staffing, IHSS Care Givers, Pick-Up Stix, USPS, and South West Greens.
