Chesapeake College Offers GED and ESL Classes

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - For Wednesday's Meet The Money Givers segment, WMDT is switching things up.

This one is not a scholarship, but if you didn't quite make it through high school to get that diploma, here's your chance. Chesapeake College offers an adult education program for residents living in Wicomico, Dorchester, Queen Anne's, Talbot, Kent and Caroline counties in Maryland.

"We have people in their 80's in our classrooms, it's a whole range of people that need a high school diploma," said Jason Mullen, GED Program Coordinator.

You can sign up for a number of courses: GED, English as a second language, or an alternative: the external diploma plan.

"That generally works better for people who have been out of school a really long time, have worked for a while, and cant make it into that more traditional classroom," said Mullen.

Instead of a rigorous exam, you complete a series of activities. As for the GED, you're tested on social studies, math, reading, writing and science.

"We have single moms that are now CNA's. We have men that have struggled, were incarcerated and are now out and have high school diplomas and are looking for more," said Mullen.

Registration is every Friday at 4:30 p.m. at the library inside the Centre At Salisbury Mall. It's best if you hit the books now, because officials say come 2014, the cost to take the GED will spike from $45 to $120.
