Our MISSION is to assist individuals with the learning process by earning a TASC (formerly a GED Diploma) after attending Test Preparation classes; or a job-related skill / new hobby through Continuing Education classes.                          


Adult High School Credit (Night School)

Effective May 14, 2013, the Merrillville Adult Education High School Credit (diploma) Program was closed. 

TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion)

(Formerly the GED Preparation 

& GED Test)

Beginning in January of 2014, the Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma will be based on the completion of a comprehensive test developed by CTB/McGraw-Hill instead of the GED tests from GED Testing Service which is now referred to as the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) Test.  Our TASC preparation classes are designed for students to learn from their current knowledge to a point where passing the TASC Test the first time is a reasonable goal.  This will enable students to be better prepared to take the test with our program.

"Test Prep"  for the current Winter/Spring 2014 schedule.

(TASC Preparation Classes are NOT required prior to taking the TASC Test.)
