Get Your GED!
The GED tests measure the major academic skills and concepts associated with four years of regular high school instruction. They provide an opportunity for persons who have not graduated from high school to earn a high school equivalency diploma.
Starting in early October, three recreation centers and two Denver Public Library locations will host GED classes and children’s activities on an ongoing basis, making it easier than ever before for a person to prepare for their GED. This program intends to remove barriers to earning a GED thus helping participants to get one step closer to their educational dreams of attending college.
The classes will be offered at Rude Recreation Center, Hadley Branch Library and Swansea Recreation Center. Congruent children’s activities will be offered at Valdez-Perry Branch Library in the Elyria Swansea neighborhood and Athmar Park Recreation Center, which is close to Hadley Branch Library.
GED classes begin monthly, and the cost of the program is $40. This includes a pre-assessment test to be taken at the GED Institute at Community College of Denver on the Auraria Campus.
Online GED classes can be completed during Hadley Branch Library’s Community Learning Plazas, held Mondays and Tuesdays, 5-7:30 p.m. or anytime the Hadley Branch or any Denver Public Library location is open on the free public computers.
