GED® Preparation

GED® Preparation Classes

This program provides individualized instruction in preparation for the GED® test to those students who do not have a high school diploma and intend to enroll or are currently enrolled in a Workforce Education Program.   The GED® test preparation course covers the four subject areas measured on the GED® test; Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

We offer GED® preparation in an online or face-to-face format.  The TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) is required prior to entrance into the class; a $10 TABE testing fee and a photo ID is required.  The TABE test is available Monday – Thursday in Building 11 at 8:30 a.m., no appointment necessary. We can then assist you with registration for GED® preparation classes.

Students have the option of a face-to-face or online class. Face-to-face GED® classes are available mornings and afternoons at the Sheridan West campus location.
