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.
