High-school equivalency test prep underway

City School District of Albany logo

A City School District of Albany free program is underway to help adults who didn’t finish high school prepare for the state’s high school equivalency exam.

The exam, called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), replaced the GED in 2002 as the only free exam leading to a high school equivalency diploma from the state.

Test prep classes will be held in-person from 4:30-6:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday.

Each student will receive personalized instruction that is tailored to meet his or her individual needs. Instruction is done by a certified teacher who works with students to overcome their challenges so they can successfully pass the exam and earn a high-school equivalency diploma.

Class size is limited to 15. You must take the test-prep class in order to take the test.  A student’s level of preparedness will determine when he or she can take the test. Also, students must be over 21 years old and residents of the City of Albany.
