Are you looking for a way to pursue your dreams of earning your high school diploma? Look no further, because Florissant Valley will serve as the area's newest site for High School Equivalency exam preparation classes. Starting in 2014, students will pursue high school equivalency through the HiSet test rather than the GED. Classes meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Interested students must attend all of the four orientation sessions. Students will need to bring proper I.D. and attend the first four sessions on October 21, 23, 28, and 30 to complete testing and be enrolled.
