About High School Equivalency and GED Preparation
Adults who do not have a high school diploma can study for their high school equivalency at Delaware County Literacy Council (DCLC).
The GED® is a computer-based test offered at various local test sites. Passing the four subject tests of the GED is accepted in Pennsylvania as equivalent to a high school diploma. For more information or to register for a test, visit www.ged.com.
HiSET is another high school equivalency test accepted in Pennsylvania. HiSET is offered on paper or on computer and includes five subject tests. For more information or to register for a test, see the HiSET Pennsylvania test-takers page.
