High School Equivalency (GED) and Evening High School

Passing the High School Equivalency tests enables a student to earn credentials accepted by most employers and schools. Oakton's High School Equivalency (GED) program can help you prepare for these tests so you can start preparing for your next step after high school. If you still need to finish your high school diploma, Oakton also offers high school courses at night. Students who are not currently enrolled in a regular daytime high school program may obtain a high school diploma by attending evening classes with us. Find out more about our high school programs here.
