Adult Ed Classes

EXETER —Adults who did not complete high school or who need to improve basic reading, writing, or math skills are encouraged to come back to school. Because school may not have been a positive experience the first time, returning to school may sound like a scary thing to do. Yet many adults from ages 18 to 75 have taken the courageous step to get their GED or to improve their spelling, reading, and math.

Some of these brave people come to school because they need a GED to get a job or to prepare for job training or college. Others want to be able to help their own children but need to improve their own skills first. Whatever the reason, it’s not too late. Adults who want to learn to speak, read or write English are welcome in ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes.

Adult Basic Education and GED Preparation day classes meet on Mon., Wed., and Fri., from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Evening classes meet on Monday and Thursday from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. Registration for day classes is on Mon., September 9, at 9:00 a.m. Registration for evening classes is on Thurs., September 12, at 6:30 p.m.

The GED® test will change at the end of 2013. Anyone who has not completed the current test will need to start all over in January 2014 with a brand new high school equivalency test. The high school equivalency certificate issued by the NH Department of Education will be based on the HiSET exam rather than GED beginning in 2014.

ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) day classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. Evening classess meet Monday & Thursday 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. ESOL class placement and consequent schedule is determined by an intake assessment, so all prospective students should plan to attend registration day. Registration for day classes is on Wed., September 11, at 9:00 a.m. Registration for evening classes is on Mon., September 16, at 6:30 p.m.

ABE and ESOL classes are free. GED course tuition is $80, including books. Limited scholarships are available.

All classes meet at the Tuck Learning Campus, Entrance D, 30 Linden Street, Exeter. For more information, please call Exeter Adult Education at 775-8457 or visit their website at http://adulted,sau16.org.
