For our clients, it is never too late to obtain a high school diploma. If they are thinking about preparing for the GED but do not have the most open schedule, the Center for Family Resources has them covered. Did you know that your support allows our Employment and Education Services to include a GED preparatory program that is provided in partnership with the Cobb Adult Basic Education Program and the Cobb Literacy Council? Classes are offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with free childcare.
In 2018, the Center for Family Resources helped 7 people obtain their GED and had a total of 84 people enrolled in our program during the year.
Throughout their time in the program, clients work at their own pace, with a tutor, or in small groups. Regardless of the type of learner our students may be, they will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the different concepts that can be found on the GED test while receiving empowerment and support from our staff and instructors.
According to GED Testing Service, 97% of employers accept the GED credential. Because the GED is a high school equivalency exam, students are tested in four content areas that include Mathematical Reasoning, Reasoning Through Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.
