Thomas Dunn Learning Center HiSET Prep Program is designed to meet the needs of those who did not finish high school but need state-issued high school equivalency credentials. HiSET stands for High School Equivalency Test. It is the test chosen by the State of Missouri to allow adults to earn their high school diploma. It is similar to the GED that Missouri used to use and is used in other states. Attainment allows an individual to move forward in a career field, join the military, begin a training program, or continue their education.

​Who can be in HiSET?

  • Those not enrolled or graduated from high school
  • Those at least 16 years old
  • Residents of Missouri


How much does it cost?

  • Instruction is FREE.
  • There is a fee for exams, however Thomas Dunn Learning Center offers scholarships to cover testing fees for those who stay in program and continue to progress.


How do I start?

  • Register by meeting with Director of Education
  • Schedule and take two assessment tests
  • Plan individual study timeline for success with the Director of Education
