GED Preparation Programs

Our mission, in partnership with students, families and the community, is to set high expectations and to instill the desire in students to pursue the knowledge and life skills necessary to achieve personal and professional success. By so doing, our goal is to prepare students to become contributing members of society and to enter the career of their choice. The Secondary Education GED preparation programs provide an option for those students, 18 years of age and younger, who require a nontraditional program because they are academically at risk and/or a potential dropout.

NOTE: Services for students age 18 and older are provided through Adult Continuing Education.

Chesterfield County Public Schools commitment to alternative education supports building on the strengths and experiences of the past while thoughtfully and consistently adapting for the future. Research on best practices will be applied to develop programs to meet the needs of students in the 21st century.
