Over 20 Million Adults

That’s how many have successfully passed their high school equivalency test. So why wait?

LET’S GET STARTED

"At my age, it was difficult to enter the testing center and not feel ashamed by the younger folks’ stares. TASC Academy prepared me to overcome that fear through preparation. Much of what I had forgotten in my youth came back to me as I studied for the TASC. I re-learned things that I had forgotten I even knew to begin with."

– Ty
