The Adult Education Program offers GED preparation and Basic Reading and Math classes. Enrollment is based on the results of placement tests; learners are placed in the appropriate class for their level.
Basic Reading and Math classes are for adults who need basic instruction in reading, writing, and math. Math 1, 2, and 3 and Reading 1, 2, and 3 classes are for adults who need more practice in reading, writing, and math skills as they prepare to transition to GED-level classes.
GED-level classes are for adults who are preparing to take the GED Tests and need to review their skills. Classes focus on writing, math problem solving, and test-taking skills.
