GED/Literacy

Do you want to earn your GED or improve your skills in Reading or Math?

Getting your GED can put you on the path to your career goals.  GED graduates are more likely to be employed and earn more than people without a GED or high school diploma.

FREE GED preparation classes are offered mornings and evenings at various locations throughout the JWCC district. The classes will help prepare you for the GED test as well as help you be successful in college or employment after obtaining your GED.  Participants are assessed for placement, then work at their own pace with instructor assistance. Practice tests are available to help determine when the student is ready to take the GED Exam.  Instructional materials are loaned to students in the program without charge.

New classes begin every 8 weeks.  Students are enrolled in classes after attending an orientation session.
