Whether to pursue a career or attend college, a high school equivalency credential is an important gateway to higher education and career advancement.
HiSET, offered through Educational Testing Services (ETS) provides important advantages that give you the best chance to succeed on test day.

Almost all adult education programs in Maine offer College Transitions, but each offers something unique. At Merrymeeting Adult Education, we offer two models:
Cohort: All students enter the program at the same time and continue to work together for its duration, usually one or two semesters. Schedules may be one full day per week, two evenings per week, or possibly two morning or afternoon sessions.
Menu of services: Classes and services are offered at a variety of times and locations. Students work with the academic counselor to plan their schedules and complete course requirements.
Meet with one of our academic counselors to find out the best model to fit your lifestyle. To get started, call 729-7323, Ext.3, or 443-8255.

We are always open to suggestions for new courses. If you would like to propose and/or teach a class, we ask that you fill out a teacher application and course proposal form and return them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once we receive both forms, an interview with an administrator will be scheduled if your course is one we might be interested in running.
Twice a year we offer a free one-evening class during which an administrator shares information about our enrichment program, how to propose courses, and what to expect as a teacher. These sessions are a great way to get feedback about your course ideas, and ask questions. For upcoming dates, please see our current print catalog or search our course listings.
To attend personal enrichment classes at Merrymeeting Adult Education, you must be 18 years old or must have prior approval from our office.
To attend academic courses for high school credit at Merrymeeting Adult Education, you must be 16 years old and have approval to attend the course from our academic counselor.
