Tri-State HEP (High School Equivalency program) is a program for migrant and seasonal farm-worker students who are unable to graduate from high school because of frequent family moves. The program goals include completion of GED and placement in post-secondary education, career or the military. Tri-State High School Equivalency Program is 100% funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Office of Migrant Education.
Tri-State HEP allows migrants and their families to complete their GED in approximately twenty weeks. We have several satellite locations where we offer GED evening and/or day classes. Classes are located in Clarksville, Arkansas; Russellville, Arkansas; Dodge City, Kansas; Liberal, Kansas; Pittsburg, Kansas; and Guymon, Oklahoma.
Eligible students receive free instruction, free books and materials, tutors, opportunities to participate in cultural events, career/job placement information, and a stipend to apply toward personal expenses during the instruction. Classes are taught by skilled professional instructors in both English and Spanish.
