During COVID-19 Closures:

Our HSE program, as described below, is now being offered remotely. To participate in these classes you will need access to a device (computer, laptop, iPad, or smartphone) and wireless service.

Why should I join?

Obtaining a High School degree is necessary to obtain most jobs, and is an achievement you can be proud of! Grace Outreach’s High School Equivalency program is designed to help you pass the New York State High School Equivalency exam, now called the TASC. Grace Outreach provides students with classes to help women pass the TASC Exam, schedules you to test when our teachers think you’re ready, and celebrates your accomplishment with an end-of-the-year graduation ceremony.


We help you schedule your exam date and give you directions to get there.

Taking the exam is FREE!
