If you didn’t graduate from high school and are at least 18, now is the time to earn your GED. A GED certificate is equivalent to a high school diploma.
Ready to help you achieve your GED are 20 teachers, access to computer labs and day or night classes at eight sites throughout Chesterfield County: Ettrick Elementary, Harrowgate Elementary, Manchester Middle, Bird High, Chesterfield Technical Center, Bensley Community Center, Capital Area Workforce Center and Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church.
Registration for GED classes will take place 6:30-9:30 p.m. Feb. 6 at the Chesterfield Technical Center, 10101 Courthouse Road. Classes meet twice a week, beginning the week of Feb. 13 and continuing through the week of May 17.
To earn a GED, you will be assessed, participate in preparation classes, then take tests in reading, writing, social studies, science and mathematics.
GED tuition costs $70 for new students, which includes a book. If you have a child in Head Start, you may qualify for reduced tuition.
To learn more or if you cannot register on Feb. 6, call 768-6140 to find out how you can move forward toward your GED. Additional information is online at mychesterfieldschools.com in the Adult Continuing Education program guide.
