Learning- Continuing Education
The Indiana HSE (High School Equivalency) is an alternative for earning a high school diploma. An HSE Diploma is earned by successfully completing a test based on five subject areas (math, reading, writing, science, and social studies). The skills taught and tests taken are the same level as those of graduating high school seniors.
Taking the HSE test is the first step toward a better job or continuing on an educational path to a certificate, 2-year associate degree, or 4-year bachelor’s degree.
PPL partners with the Plymouth Community School Corporation’s Adult Basic Education class to provide a place of study and learning for HSE preparation. Classes meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm in the Laramore Meeting Rooms. For more information visit the Plymouth Community School Corporation’s Adult Education website or contact Deb Sherwood at 574-936-7268.
