One of our top goals at Trapper Creek Job Corps is to ensure that every qualified student obtains his or her HiSET and high school diploma prior to leaving the center.
The HiSET is the high school equivalency test that has been adopted by the State of Montana in place of the GED. The HiSET exam demonstrates that a test taker has attained the academic knowledge and proficiency equivalent to those of a high school graduate. Information from the exam helps identify the areas where test takers are career and college ready, as well as areas where they may need additional preparation.
Students who don't already have a high school diploma upon their arrival at Trapper Creek can enroll in our HiSET program. This program provides training on the five HiSET subject area tests: Language Arts- writing, Language Arts- reading, social studies, science, and math. Our HISET training is individualized to meet the specific needs of each student.
Students who pass the HiSET can also earn their high school diplomas through our Trapper Creek Job Corps High School program. To qualify for this program, a student must have a copy of his/her previous high school transcript. Any credits that a student has prior to coming to our center will count toward the 24 needed to earn a high school diploma.
