California High School Proficiency Examination
The CHSPE (not to be confused with the
exit exam or "CAHSEE") is a rigorous examination aligned with
California's high school curriculum standards. Students may take the
CHSPE if they are 16 years of age or older on the test date or have
completed the first semester of grade ten. Successful test takers will
earn the legal equivalent of a high school diploma from the state (NOT A BOHS DIPLOMA). With parental permission, these students may leave school to pursue career goals or other educational options.
The online registration form and
information regarding fees, test locations, scheduling, and
understanding results are available on the CHSPE website at www.chspe.net.
