Adult Education & GED services provide academic skills instruction and GED preparation to assist individuals in improving educational attainment levels and successfully entering employment and post-secondary education. The program is available to students served through the Perkins Center. The GED program is also available to area residents who need to earn their GED.
Classes are designed to improve an individual's ability to read, write and speak in English, use computers, solve problems, and function effectively in the workplace, family and society. Students have the opportunity to improve basic educational levels prior to seeking training. Classes are based on individual needs and use a variety of instructional media.

The battery of tests involves high-school thinking skills, including application, analysis, comprehension and evaluation, language, arts-reading, language arts-writing, mathematics, science and social studies.
