The High School GED®/ISAEP Program is comprised of three sections: GED® Prep class, Accelerated GED® class, and the Individual Student Alternative Education Program (ISAEP).

The GED® Prep class is designed to help students whose academic performance is between 7th and 8th grade level to improve basic reading, writing and math skills, so that they will be able to advance to the next class level class. This class meets from 12:00-2:00 p.m., daily.

The Accelerated GED® class is designed to meet the needs of students whose reading, writing and math skills are above 9th grade level. These students have earned few credits toward obtaining a high school diploma. Instruction is directed towards the requirements of the GED® tests.  Students are promoted to ISAEP as soon as their academic scores meet the requirements of ISAEP.  The class meets from 9:00-11:00 a.m., daily.

The ISAEP class will continue to prepare for the GED® test.  Once reaching the academic requirement for testing, and after completing the vocational component of the program, the students are allowed to test.  The class meets from 9:00-11:00 a.m., Monday – Thursday.

Transportation is provided for all classes.
