GED Preparation Classes

Adult basic skills classes offer you the opportunity to study for the GED or improve basic skills.  Many employers look for the job applicant to have a high school diploma or GED as a minimum rquirement for employment.  The GED can open doors for further education in college, academic, career or technical training.   The General Educational Development Test (GED) is a test, which upon successful completion, merits a high school equivalency diploma. The GED is accepted nationally for admission to most colleges, training programs, and the military.


Requirements

To participate in any GED preparation course, applicants must:

  • be 17 years of age before September 1;
  • officially withdrawn from school for two weeks; and
  • attend a minimum of 12 hours of class once enrolled.
