The Bridge Program classes in literacy and math prepare you for the GED®, the next step in your career, or college. Classes are open to all students who meet the placement requirement in reading.
GED® Testing & Transcripts
The official GED® test is offered at the Providence and Lincoln campuses. The GED® is a four-part nationally recognized high school equivalency test aligned with state standards.
In this two-day workshop you will take the Official GED® Ready practice tests in the test center with support. An advisor will orient you to the testing process and help you understand your options to pass the GED® test based on your scores.
English Language Studies (ELS)
ELS classes are available in levels 1 - 6 to give students an understanding of the basics of the English language.
The goal of the program is to help speakers of other languages achieve a level of English proficiency to function better in everyday living, enter a job training program, improve performance in current jobs, and/or pursue other goals.
RI-BEST classes are offered for students to take college-level courses and get additional academic support in these classes. RI-BEST students will earn college credit and have teachers to provide additional tutoring in academic courses.
