GED PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

GED, best known as a test of General Education Development is a national alternative educational program leading to a certificate of achievement from the State of Virginia as an alternative to a regular high school diploma.

Students enrolled in this program must be able to pass a comprehensive 7.5 hour exam targeting specific curriculum areas in order to complete their GED. Unlike traditional high school programs, there is no grading system used to build credit toward the certificate.

The student's success in obtaining their GED is based solely on their ability to pass the exam. Therefore the major focus of the program is to prepare students by building their competencies in writing, math, science, social studies,and literature to successfully pass the GED exam.

Students who enroll in this program will be pre-tested using a computer based diagnostic program to assess their educational levels and deficiencies.

After the pre-test, students will begin a state-of-the-art computer assisted instruction specifically designed for GED education. This special program will develop a personal profile for each individual student and will then track them through all of their sessions.

Students will also participate in teacher led classroom instruction in math, writing, critical reading, basic concepts, vocational and career planning.

To enable the student's ultimate success in this program, teachers will monitor each student's progress as they proceed through the program, provide one-to-one assistance or tutoring with students as needed, and
review each student's progress monthly.
