Adult Education

Dream It, Believe It, Achieve It!

GED Testing and Preparation

Classes are Monday-Thursday, 12:00-6:00

Adult education offers individuals 18 and older a chance to earn a GED. We also provide ABE (adult basic education) classes for individuals that are not quite ready to take their GED tests without some math and writing practice and review. Classes are offered 4 nights a week and free transportation and childcare (2 nights a week) is offered to our students. We are also offering additional events for our adult participants to suggest some direction after they earn their GED. We have Kirtland Community College, Baker College, Armed Forces, Mid Michigan Community College, and MI Works currently scheduled to come in and share information on what to do after you earn your GED. Weekly attendance is required. Contact our program at 422-6161 for any additional information.

*Once you earn your GED, you are no longer eligible to receive a high school diploma
