GED® Preparation and Adult Education classes scheduled to begin this fall

Classroom instruction offered at multiple locations and times throughout the County

Continuing Education and Workforce Development has announced there is still time to register for Adult Education classes which begin in mid-September. Both day and evening classes are scheduled at convenient locations based on need and student enrollment, which may include: Accident, Grantsville, Oakland, and Swan Meadow Elementary School.

These courses are designed to help participants earn a high school diploma, improve reading and math skills and develop job readiness skills. According to Carol Mowbray Brooks, director of adult education and workforce development, the process begins by attending an orientation and assessment session.

“It is never too late to earn your high school diploma. We know that adult learners have many responsibilities and need flexibility,” stated Mowbray Brooks. “Garrett College offers classroom instruction, blended learning (classroom and on-line instruction), as well as other distance learning options.”

Student who pass the GED ® Exams earn a Maryland High School diploma and are eligible to apply for the Garrett County Scholarship Program.

Funded by the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation (DLLR), the adult education program is available at no cost to the student – individuals are not required to pay any tuition or fees. Childcare assistance may be available for qualifying students.

Interested individuals can take the GED® Ready practice tests to determine if he or she is ready to take any of the four official GED® exams. At this time, Garrett College is waiving the $6 per test fee.
