GED® Preparation/ College Readiness

CCRI offers a College Readiness Program for learners without a high school credential.  The goal of the program is that the student obtains the GED® Credential, enter post-secondary or training, and tests out of or into the last level of one subject (Reading, Writing, or Math) on the Accuplacer college placement exam.  This class enables a student to obtain the education they need and to secure a good paying job to support themselves and their families.

The program provides:

  • Instruction in Reading, Writing, and Math for the GED® Test Battery and for preparing a student to be ready to take college level course work when entering post-secondary education or training
  • Distance Learning opportunities to supplement class instruction
  • Independent Study opportunities that include tutoring and counseling
  • College Readiness and College Knowledge skills

Classes are available during the day at the Liston Campus in Providence. The class meets for 15 weeks, and the GED® Test Battery is administered during class time at the end of the semester.  Learners must qualify for the program by taking the GED® Orientation/ Assessment.
