What is a High School Equivalency?
According to the United States Department of Education, high school equivalency tests help individuals 16 years of age or older who are not currently enrolled in school “to obtain the equivalent of a high school diploma and, subsequently, to gain employment or begin postsecondary education or training.” Such individuals may include:
- Those who found that traditional high school settings do not accommodate their needs
- Those who decided to drop out of high school
- Migratory workers (or children of such workers)
