GED® PREPARATION

  • This program helps to prepare students for the GED® Test. Those who meet eligibility criteria, are 16 years of age or older, and are officially withdrawn from high school are eligible to attend. Students who successfully complete the GED® Test are awarded a State of Florida High School Diploma.

    The GED® Preparation Program includes the study of four subject areas covered on the GED® Tests:

    1. Mathematics
    2. Reasoning through Language Arts
    3. Social Studies
    4. Science

    Diagnostic tests are used to assess each student's academic functioning levels. After this determination has been made, appropriate class materials are used to focus individualized instruction and correct any academic deficiencies. The curriculum is competency-based, allowing each student to progress at his or her own pace. 

    Online GED® Preparation is also available for those students who are 18 years of age or older and find it difficult to attend class in person.
