CAC’s GED or HSE (High School Equivalency) classes are designed to help students prepare to take the 5 GED tests.

Students must be at least 16 years old and not enrolled in school to register for class, and to take the GED test.

What do they look like?

Classes are available In-person (Face-to-Face) and Online. Online classes are only recommended for students with intermediate and advanced technology skills to ensure student success.  Attendance on the first day of class is mandatory. 

Online classes are live (synchronous) – where students and the teacher all join a virtual classroom at the same time. An orientation course and testing is required prior to the first day of class. 

Classes are divided into two skill bases: Math and Reading. Social Studies, Science, and Civics are included in the reading class. All classes have a homework requirement to enhance student success.

When can I take class?

Classes are held during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. They typically start in January, March, June, August and October.

How much does the class cost?

All classes are free!
