The ACCL is a full-service center for your High School Equivalency needs.  We offer both on-site and online prep courses for both GED and HiSET, and the ACCL is an authorized GED and HiSET Test Center allowing us to assist our students from the very beginning of the process complete to receiving their High School Equivalency Diploma.

PLATO Learning Online
Start with an assessment to individualize your learning needs and set you on the path to success.  There are three modules (Reading, Language Arts, and Math), each taking approximately 30-45 minutes.  These assessments are done at our offices in Kittanning, PA.  Once your assessments are complete, you will have a complete package of learning material to work with at any location that internet access is available.  To register for our PLATO online classes, click here.

On-Site Classes by ARIN Center for Education
The ACCL has partnered with the ARIN Center for Education to bring you High School Equivalency classes every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 A.M. to 12:00 P.M.  Our classes are small, allowing for as much individual attention as a student requires.  To register for class, click here to visit the ARIN website.

GED vs HiSET
