Aspire/High School Equivalence

College and Workplace Education Readiness is the framework of the curriculum at Hamilton City Aspire Program. This FREE program focuses on what adults need to know and be able to do in order to carry out their roles and responsibilities as workers, parents, family members, citizens, and community members. Aspire students strengthen lifelong learning skills to enter post-secondary classes or strengthen the skills necessary to create an educated workforce for the 21st Century. Academic Skills Update is available for all adults to improve reading, writing, and math skills. Teachers help students prepare for exams such as Para Pro, Accuplacer, Work Keys, and ACT.  Ohio High School Equivalence Diploma Preparation is included for students who want to obtain a diploma. We want to help participants without a high school diploma obtain this credential as quickly as possible.

High School Equivalence testing such as GED and HiSet, allows students to complete their high school diploma.

Work Ready / Career Ready Work Keys Certification can help adults get better jobs or enter training programs to learn new skills.

Distance Learning options are available for students who cannot regularly attend Aspire classes. English for Speakers of Other Languages classes is available to help people learn to speak, write, and read English.

FREE College Transition Classes are held at Miami Hamilton and Miami Middletown to help students choose careers and prepare for college.
