Register to get an adult high school diploma
EXETER – The Exeter Adult Diploma program is now enrolling students for the Winter / Spring 2021 semester.
The program is aimed at students who haven’t graduated from high school but want to earn a diploma by taking classes in the evenings that are similar to high school students. Classes are small and are offered on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Remote and in-person courses are available.
Adults interested in this program should call the Exeter Adult Education Office at 603-775-8457 as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. Prospective students are asked to bring a copy of their high school diploma and certificates from another education to evaluate how many credits they have earned. Older students can also qualify for work experience or military loans.
The choice of courses for this semester includes exploring contemporary topics through literature, personal finance, biology with laboratory, global business and human rights. Classes start on February 1st. Limited scholarships are available thanks to the Exeter Rotary Club and Exeter Lion’s Club.
These courses are also open to adults who have graduated from high school but want more background in a particular subject. Many adult students take these courses to prepare for college courses. Anyone interested in courses in the diploma program should call as soon as possible, as these courses have limited enrollment and pre-registration is required.

Equivalence and academic skills courses are offered
EXETER – What’s your New Year’s resolution? Education or career focused? Exeter adult education may have a place to act on your resolutions.
Adults who haven’t graduated from high school or need to improve their reading, writing, or math skills to develop personally or professionally are encouraged to return to school. Since school may not have been a positive experience the first time, returning to school may sound uncomfortable. Still, many adults between the ages of 18 and 75 have taken the bold step of getting their high school diploma or improving their writing, reading, and numeracy skills.
Some people come to school because they need a high school equivalency or other certification to get a job or to prepare for vocational training or college. Others want to be able to help their own children but need to improve their own skills first. Whatever the reason, it’s not too late and the Exeter Adult Education staff can help every step of the way.
HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) has replaced the GED in NH and many other states.
Like the GED, it offers the opportunity to earn and earn a New Hampshire High School Equivalency Certificate.
Academic Skills Courses for Adults and HiSET Preparation Days take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Evening courses meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 6.30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The first session registration for 2021 is Monday, January 11th at 9:00 a.m. for day courses and 6:30 p.m. for evening courses.
Academic skills and HiSET courses are free. All classes meet at the Tuck Learning Campus, Entrance D, 30 Linden Street, Exeter. For more information on these classes, please call Exeter Adult Education at 603-775-8457 or visit their website at adulted.sau16.org.
