Information About Ohio's High School Equivalency Options

High School Equivalency Exam Prep (GED and HiSET)

Aspire offers free high school equivalency prep courses. 

Daytime, evening, and distance education courses are available. 

Vouchers are available to Aspire students to help pay the exam fee.

Adult Diploma Program 

Aspire offers free classes to prepare for the Adult Diploma Program. 

The Adult Diploma Program provides job training and a new pathway for adults, ages 22 or older, to earn a high school diploma AND industry credentials aligned to one of Ohio’s in-demand jobs.

What makes this program different from a traditional high school setting is the delivery of instruction to adults. Instead of measuring academic achievement through clock hours, seat time or credits earned, the focus is on a competency-based approach that provides a self-paced option. Once competencies have been learned, adults then demonstrate mastery of skill. Each eligible adult works with the provider to create a customized student success plan.
