The GED testing program gives adults of all ages a way to demonstrate competency equivalent
to a high school education. The GED tests are designed to measure major academic skills
and knowledge. The GED test includes five subject areas tests: language arts reading,
language arts writing, social studies, science, and math.
The GED test is for people just like you! Every year thousands of people get their GED (General Educational Development) Diplomas. In Kentucky over 60,000 people attend an Kentucky Skills U (formerly Kentucky Adult Education) class every year. Maybe you had to leave high school to help take of your family. Maybe you just didn't like school, or didn't think a high school diploma would mean anything; and now you know what it means to have it. It's not too late to make your dreams come true. The Skills U program at West Kentucky Community & Technical College provides an opportunity to earn your GED regardless of how long you have been out of school.
Classes are taught by enthusiastic and experienced instructors. Classes are usually 25 people or less. We try to keep classes small so you get individualized attention. Classes will include working in groups and working individually on specifically what you need to work on to pass the GED test. You are encouraged to work at your own pace to ensure success. This may include working on math, science, social studies, writing, or reading. If you only need to study a specific subject, you can do that too. Classes are FREE of charge, and the books are also provided to students free of charge.
