There is a $10 non-refundable fee for each session, which, upon receipt is recorded by your life coach placed in fund that will be applied to your GED testing fee. If you are unable to pay the fee, you may request and complete a waiver form and submit it for approval by the program director. Individuals who apply for the waiver must still must pay the GED testing fee.
Classes are arranged in semesters which are divided into four four-week blocks or "sessions" with a week of no class between sessions. The week without classes is an orientation week during which new students are accepted and placed into classes.
In addition to your teacher, you are appointed a life coach. The coach assists you in assessments and setting goals. The life coach's job is to provide needed support, help you understand the expectations of the program and to assist you throughout your educational journey.
Student Planning Guide
The student planning guide is a tool that allows students to map out plans for their educational future and subsequent career.
Open labs are times and locations at which students can come to work on lessons and do homework on the computer. We encourage students to log these hours so that we can document their achievements.
Open labs also allow students to come in during the period where our classes are closed and get started working on the online curriculum until the classes open back up.
