GED Test Preparation Program

The GED® Program offers preparation to improve academic skills so an individual can pass all four sections of the State GED® test. The sections include: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science and Social Studies. Instruction is focused on individual students learning needs and assessments are given to provide student feedback.

All students are pre-assessed in the areas of reading, writing, and mathmatics. Evening courses are then offered for English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science. As a student progresses through the program assessments are provided to analyze progress.

The computer lab is available to all students registered in GED Preparation Classes.
