Interested in earning your GED?
If you're among the 39 million adults in the U.S. who never graduated from high school, then you've probably considered getting your GED diploma. It's a credential worth getting.
Regardless of where you are at in your life, it's never too late to begin your journey in Adult Education. For U.S. adults with low skills or low academic attainment, finding the time or resources to go back to school can be difficult because of family and work obligations that may complicate participation in education or training.
A General Equivalency Diploma (GED)
is awarded to people who pass the GED test, HiSET
exam, or TASC
test. These exams measure basic skills, knowledge, and the ability to apply them. The tests are four-part or five-part exams covering reading, writing, science, social studies, and math.
The tests aren't too difficult, if you prepare the right way and take some time to understand the test and brush up on what you need to know, a GED test can be easy.
How We Can Help
The Mesa County Workforce Center is excited to offer GED Prep classes in Grand Junction (Adult Basic and Adult Secondary levels).
Adult Education classes will help students prepare for the GED test and develop reading comprehension, writing, and math skills needed in the workforce. Students will take a TABE assessment to determine their level and then work closely with an instructor to develop a lesson plan that fits their needs. Classes are self-paced and an instructor is available to work with students individually.
Our amazing Adult Education team here at the Mesa County Workforce Center can work with you through any barriers you may be facing to help put you on the path towards furthering your education. They can help identify the areas that you need work on. They meet students with where they are at and assist them by working through the areas that they may improve on.
