Grace Outreach is enjoying a robust group of 60 women who are here each day on 151st Street studying and preparing for their High School Equivalency exam. The new exam is called the TASC. Each student is studying all 5 subjects on the TASC (Science, Math, Social Studies, Writing, & Reading) and each student will take the TASC exam by mid-December.
Of these 60 students, 56 live in the Bronx. The youngest student in the group is 19 years old and the oldest is 54 years old. 11 of the students were previously at Grace Outreach and have returned to keep working towards this equivalency diploma.
