Adult Learning Center Events

Massachusetts offers both the  HiSET and the GED as tests to award a Massachusetts High School Equivalency credential.   The Lawrence Adult Learning Center Test Center is moving to the Lawrence Public Library at 51 Lawrence Street, 3rd floor. We administer the HiSET test  in both Paper/Pencil and Computer format in English or Spanish.  We will also administer the GED tests in both English and Spanish, computer based only.  Those planning to take either set of tests must register for an account at or, schedule tests and pay for testing through this same website.  We at the Lawrence ALC Test Center are happy to help.  Please call us at 978-722-8114 for assistance.


Our Center is prepared to assist adults who are interested in preparing to take the test through our classes at the Adult Learning Center, located at 147 Haverhill Street.  Please contact us to answer any questions.

State Representative Frank Moran visited with recent HiSET recipients who overcame tremendous obstacles to receive their high school equivalency.  These students were among 70 who attended the recent Adult Learning Center graduation ceremony held at the Performing Arts Center at LHS.  Over 400 people from all over the state passed their HiSET tests at the ALC Test Center, located at the Family Resource Center.

PreHiSET Class learning about the Ballot Questions

Mrs. Segaloff's PreHiSET Class presented information about the four Ballot Questions to Mrs. Chupkai's High ESOL Class this week.  Students researched information about each question and helped their peers create informed decisions so they can participate fully in the upcoming election.  As adults, we all want to become strong contributors to the Democratic process.  Well done!
