Family Learning Center

A- A A+


Welcome to the YWCA Family Learning Center!  We have open enrollment for all Tennessee adults who wish to earn their High School Equivalency Degree through the HiSET program. All classes, tutoring, and practice tests are free of charge. At this time, our classes are being delivered on-line, which requires internet access and a computer, laptop, or telephone. Not having access to these does NOT mean that you cannot access instruction!  Our instructor will be happy to send you instructional material, and work with you on a one-to-one basis to help you learn, until we can resume our in-person classes.

Before accessing the enrollment form below, please be sure that you have a scanned copy of your government-issued photo identification, as we will ask you to upload that copy at the end of the form.

The last name on your primary ID must match (excluding hyphens and accents) the name on your enrollment.  The following ID documents – issued by any government – are acceptable:
·       Passport
·       Government-issued driver’s license or temporary license
·       State ID card (including those issued by the motor vehicle agencies)
·       National ID card
·       Military ID card

We look forward to welcoming you to our YWCA family!

Finding the YWCA and completing the program has not only changed the course of my life, it has also increased the quality of life for my entire family I am proud of the example I am setting for my children. That is the power of the YWCA—it’s a ripple effect that heals, helps, and serves not only individuals, but the community.
