KC GED Express begins in February
Wednesday, January 25, 2012
The Adult Education and Transition Programs (AETP) division at Kishwaukee College will be offering the popular GED Express class February 21 - March 1. Orientation and placement testing will be held the week of February 6. Interested district residents should call 815-825-2086, ext. 3370 or ext. 3180 to reserve a space in the class by February 3.
For any adult who did not finish high school, GED Express has proven to be a quick way to complete a GED and open up the door to a brighter future. The class has been offered at least once each semester for the past several years, and usually fills quickly.
The class was created for students reading at the 10th grade level or above, who are motivated to complete the GED in a quick and efficient 7-day format. Students prepare in the late afternoon each day for the corresponding test given the next day in the early afternoon. In the upcoming February class, students will meet February 21 - 24 and February 28 and 29, from 3 - 5:40 p.m. to prepare for a particular GED test area. The students will take the GED tests on February 22 - 24, 28, 29 and March 1 beginning at 1:00 p.m. When the Express class is finished, the students will have completed all six of the GED tests. In addition, each day after taking a GED Test, students will be offered a presentation on career interest inventories, Kishwaukee College programs, a tour of Kishwaukee, financial aid and scholarships.
