High School Equivalency Testing Center

The Testing Center

PCTI will offer The High School Equivalency Tests supplied by ETS-HiSET as a paper-pen and as a computerized test. The tests will be given once a month on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings for full tests and/or make-ups. The High School Equivalency Test Center is wheelchair accessible with provisions for Special Accommodations for individuals with learning disabilities and health-related needs.

Tests are available in English and in Spanish; but, the English and Spanish Scores cannot be combined.
