About HSE

High School Equivalency classes can help develop the reading, writing, math, science, and social studies skills needed to pass Texas High School Equivalency exams. Upon successful completion of the High School Equivalency (HSE) examination, the Texas Education Agency, (TEA), will issue you the Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency. Although there are other exams around the nation, the only HSE examination currently authorized by the state of Texas is the GED. The GED exam/s are administered via computer. Although WINGS has a limited number of public laptop computers for student use, it is highly recommended that each student have a personal device to access their lessons.
