GED® Fact Sheet
Pre-Test Referral Form

The High School GED®/ISAEP (Individual Student Alternative Education Plan) Program serves students enrolled in WJCC Schools who wish to earn high school credential but need an alternative to a traditional diploma. Students aged 16 to 18 who do not have sufficient credits to attain a high school diploma can apply for the High School GED®/ISAEP Program.

To apply for the program, students must request an application from the Student Advancement Coach or Guidance Department of the high school they attend or are zoned to attend. The Student Advancement Coach will administer required pre-tests, and High School GED®/ISAEP Program staff will offer or decline admittance into the program based on an applicant’s completed application, pre-test scores, academic and behavioral background.

The High School GED®/ISAEP Program consists of two required components: preparation to take the GED® Test, and vocational counseling and education. Successful completion of the program results in a GED® diploma and a certificate of ISAEP Program completion.

Students attend class two hours a day, five days a week. Employment or volunteering is mandatory. WJCC’s High School GED®/ISAEP Program is located on the campus of Lafayette High School in the detached Annex.
