Since 1998, the GED Plus program has been providing students with adult basic education and high school equivalency test preparation for out-of-school youth. We have assisted over 400 youth with earning the HiSet (formerly GED) diploma and accessing college, vocational training and employment in their effort to secure better life outcomes for themselves and their families. At GED Plus students learn the academic core competencies of English Language Arts – reading and writing, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science. Knowledge in these 5 areas is needed to pass the HiSet (High School Equivalency Test).
All GED Plus class are Tuesday – Thursday from September to June.
Mornings 9 – 1:30 or Evenings 6-9.
