The Adult Education and GED Program is designed to meet the academic, professional, and personal needs of both its adult basic education and GED student participants.
The program encourages family strengthening and parent self-esteem by: providing assistance in achievement of a GED; encouraging expansion of personal reading and language skills through individualized instruction and small group interactions; and enhancing job skills through training and computer access.
In addition, the program works individually with adult learners to develop job seeking skills, build self-confidence and gain the expertise needed for securing and maintaining a job.
Upon entry into the program, students complete a math, reading, and writing assessment to determine their individual academic needs. Based on the initial assessment results, instructors create individual learning plans for all the academic areas tested.
New students meet with their assigned instructor to: determine a plan of individualized study; discuss any barriers that might hinder regular attendance and develop strategies to diminish their impact; and identify support services for resolving special learning needs if needed.
Instruction is offered in the following formats:
individual instruction (used to provide one-on-one academic instruction and interaction)
small group instruction (used to address academic and developmental stages and needs)
computer-assisted learning and testing (used to promote computer skills and independent learning)
