“It’s just opened so many doors for me,” says Frank Villanueva of his HiSET high school credential.  “It gets me to the places I want and need to be in life.”


A graduate of NDEC’s Adult HiSET Program, Frank learned about NDEC from a teacher at his brother’s high school.   Based on that teacher’s recommendation, Frank did his research, took the HiSET placement test to determine the classes he needed, and the rest, as they say, is history.


“The classes were great, and they really prepared me well for the exam,” says the Malden resident.  “I also have to thank Adam Berndt (Youth Education Services and Adult Education Services Specialist).  He was a fantastic teacher and I wouldn’t be where I am today without him.”
