Adults who do not have a high school diploma can take their first step toward earning a GED by registering for a class offered through the Adult Continuing Education Office:
- On-site registration, which includes orientation and evaluation, begins Jan. 16-17 at the Chesterfield Technical Center, 10101 Courthouse Road. GED seekers should arrive at 6:30 p.m. and plan to stay until 9 p.m. on one of those dates.
- Online registration for GED classes and other educational opportunities has been available at ace.mychesterfieldschools.com since Jan. 7.
- For details about additional on-site registrations for GED classes, call 768-6140 or review the Adult Continuing Education program guide at mychesterfieldschools.com.
Chesterfield County Public Schools offers GED classes at a variety of times and locations to help adults 18 and older prepare to take the GED test, which covers reading, writing, social studies, science and math. GED stands for General Educational Development, and a GED certificate is equivalent to a high school diploma.
GED tuition for the spring semester is $30, which is due at registration. Cash and money orders are accepted during on-site registration. GED seekers who register online may pay their tuition online by credit card; there is a 2.99 percent fee. The textbook for GED classes costs about $25, and the required calculator costs about $15.
