    High School Equivalency Exams

    Vista Adult School is a testing center for two California approved High School Equivalency (HSE) Exams - the GED and the HiSET. A HSE exam is for adults who do not have a high school diploma. Those who pass the exam will receive a California High School Equivalency Certificate. Anyone 18 years of age or older, or 17 under certain circumstances, is eligible to take a HSE exam. CA residency and acceptable ID is required to take the exam. Be sure the name you register for the exam with matches the name on your ID. In addition to being a testing center, Vista Adult School can help to prepare you to pass these HSE exams. To enroll, attend a High School Program orientation.


    We are a Pearson Vue authorized testing center and offer the GED exam via computer. To sign up for the GED you must first register through www.GED.com; all registration, scheduling and payments is done through the GED website. The GED exam consists of four parts: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. More information can be found at the www.ged.com website.


    The State of California has approved the HiSET exam, which is an alternative to the GED.

The exam consists of five parts: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. More information can be found at the www.hiset.org website.
