The HSE program is designed to develop and improve a person's mastery of skills and general knowledge in the 4 subject areas of Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Math. Any person, 18 years of age or older, may enroll in the program. HSE classes are available at each of Vance-Granville Community College's campuses, at other sites located throughout the college's service area, and online
Students entering a HSE course of study are assessed to determine areas of strengths and weaknesses. Instructors work individually with students in goal planning the most effective study program. HSE classes concentrate on improving reading comprehension skills, writing ability, and up-grading math skills in preparation for HSE testing.
