High School Equivalency Program
The High School Equivalency (HSE) program holds its Auburn classes in the Auburn Presbyterian Church three times weekly; four hours per class. The class is through Impact Institute of Kendallville, Indiana and is designed to serve adults of the community ages sixteen and above. The class is monitored by Impact and the state of Indiana, meeting the requirements of the state to obtain a High School Equivalency Degree and to prepare those who desire to sharpen their skills to enter the workforce or advanced training. All instructors hold a current Indiana teaching license and are required to attend state mandated seminars and professional development training throughout the year.
Impact is proud of the success that has occurred in the classroom with many who achieved an HSE, entered job training such as healthcare professionals, welding, CAD, auto mechanics and marine technology. Many students have obtained job certification through Ivy Tech, a partner with Impact in students’ career and job training as well as job placement.
