Monday - Thursday
This course is designed to prepare students to pass the GED or HiSET examination in order to obtain a High School Equivalency Certificate.
Knowledge and use of the English language is highly recommended.
A variety of language arts, math, social studies, science, and GED prep textbooks will be available to students for use while in the classroom. Computer programs and online programs will be offered to students as appropriate to academic levels, needs, and goals.
The option to purchase a high school Equivalency Preparation book will be offered to students.
Students will be expected to be diligent in their studies as outlined in the individualized study plan, complete assignments in a timely matter, maintain consistent attendance, and respect others by adhering to classroom policy.
Students will begin the course by taking a CASAS 900 series "Life and Skills" test. This score will determine the student’s reading level and will be used to implement the student’s individualized study plan. Later in the semester a post-test will be given to monitor progress and is required to be taken by all students. The student’s study plan will either be ABE or HSE, which will be laid out in their study plan tracking sheet. As a student progresses and needs arise, textbooks, materials, and computer programs will be adjusted and recorded on the student’s tracking sheet. For HSE students, the GED/HiSET Academy online program will be assigned as students successfully complete assignments as stated in their study plan. This online program is the final step prior to taking the GED or HiSET exam.
