Find a Program

The Office of Adult Education Initiatives supports programs all across Colorado that provide services that can help you get to the next level. Adult education programs help students prepare for the high school equivalency tests, develop their language skills, better communicate with their children or prepare for transitioning into the workplace and/or college. Services at these programs may include English as a second language development, reading, writing, math, digital literacy, job entry skills, workplace training or other skills that can help to make you more employable or transition into college. Find a program near you.

High School Equivalency/GED

As of April 1, 2016, a high school equivalency can be earned by passing one of three tests: GEDHiSET, or TASC. If you never received your high school diploma, then earning a high school equivalency is the next best thing.
