|Prepare for the GED (General Educational
Development) tests under the direction of a certified adult education
teacher. We provide free classes and workbooks and have tutors who
can help you brush up on areas in which you need extra help.
We also have a school psychologist on our staff who can test for learning
differences or difficulties and who may be able to provide accommodations to ease test-taking in such cases. Please call 330-7731 ext. 52123 to discuss such a need.
We are here to help. We prepare our students to make sure they do not take
the test until they are ready, and we advise them to take the free practice test offered as part of their GED class before they spend the money to take the actual GED
