VITA also helps adult learners work toward their high school equivalency diploma. In Louisiana, the GED test has been replaced with the HiSET, which stands for High School Equivalency Test. The test has five parts: reading, writing, mathematics, social studies, and science. VITA offers classes in all of the test subject areas. We also offer an eLearn program for those interested in studying at home on their own schedule.
In addition to offering daily classes in the needed subject areas, students can be assigned a volunteer tutor to help build their skills in preparation for HiSET testing.
Individual goal-oriented counseling is provided to all students seeking a HiSET.
Regular attendance is very important when it comes to making progress, especially for students who want to take the HiSET. In general, you'll get out of the program what you put in to it -- the more you can attend, the faster you can achieve your goal!
