The HSE program allows adults who left high school before graduation earn their high school equivalency diploma. Participants take an initial assessment test, receive classroom instruction based on their academic needs, and complete a standardized exam.

Graduates who meet certain criteria can apply to receive 300 hours of paid job training from WorkForce Essentials and American Job Center. The State of Tennessee also provides a cash incentive of $100.00 for passing the practice exam and $250.00 for passing the final exam.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the Educational Opportunity Center at Austin Peay State University for paying the testing fees, Adult Literacy Council for providing workbooks and classroom materials, and the Clarksville Montgomery County School System for providing diplomas and diploma holders.
