GED Preparation Courses

Our program is designed to help students improve their math and language arts skills in preparation for the GED® test, COMPASS® exam, or employment assessments. We are committed to teaching to each student rather than using the “one room schoolhouse” approach used by many other programs. Students complete a brief math and reading assessment and enroll in classes appropriate to their academic skill-level.

We offer:

  • Classroom instruction in math and language arts
  • Small class sizes ensure individualized attention
  • Preparation for the GED® test
  • Preparation for college entrance exams or workplace aptitude tests
  • College enrollment information and assistance
  • Academic advising
  • Basic reading, writing, and math skills to improve workplace success

See our GED® brochure for detailed information, including placement test info, class schedules, step-by-step registration process, and more.
