Program Overview

The Center for Family Resources’ GED program serves students age 16 and older. These students have not been successful in the traditional educational setting, and usually have poor reading and math skills. Some come into the program and pre-test at a high-school level, however others test far below high school and need intensive Adult Basic Education (ABE) before even beginning the GED preparation. Students work one-on-one or in small groups with volunteer tutors to prepare for the exams. Each student develops a study plan based on their pre-test and then completes necessary instruction and practice tests at their own pace with the assistance of volunteers. When a student feels that they are ready to take the GED exam, the GED instructor works with them to evaluate their practice tests and coach them through the testing process. To remove a barrier for attending, child care is provided through partnership with Sheltering Arms Early Education Center which is located in the same building. Limited scholarship assistance may be provided to help cover the testing fee.

Hours of operation: Tuesdays and Thursday 3:00-5:30pm or 6:00-8:30pm, Wednesdays 3:00-5:30pm

Cost info: There is no cost to participate in preparatory classes. Participants are responsible for GED testing fees.
