There is a fee for the actual GED tests.
GED Study and Testing
The GED prep program helps students to identify which subjects within the GED they need to prepare, and which they can test out. From there, the program is individualized and each student finishes based on their own time schedule and skill level. The GED consists of 4 core tests: Science, Social Studies, Mathematical Reasoning, and Reasoning Through the Language Arts (RLA). The Center has a variety of study material including the GED Ready tests, which are half the questions and half the time of the GED, but provide a GED score, text books and workbooks along with 2 online options. Once a student is enrolled in the program, they have access to all materials at no charge.
In order to receive a credential of GED, all students are required to study for and pass the Civics test. Study material is provided and the Civics testing is free.
Students are assisted to identify which careers they are interested in as well as what is needed to do in order to complete their professional goals.
There is a variety of paper material and online resources available to improve educational functioning skills in the areas of reading, math, and writing.
English as a Second Language (ESL)
This program is provided for those who want to improve their verbal, reading, and writing skills in English. Through study aides, verbal exercises, and real life activities, adults can improve their language skills at their own pace.
