  • GED®

    Lewis and Clark Community College offers GED® instruction at several locations throughout the community. To make these classes even more easily accessible, we offer them at a variety of times as well.

    If you have been putting off finishing your education, Lewis and Clark Community College's Adult Education department can assist you in preparing for your future. GED®/Adult Education provides you with the skills for a better job or entry in post secondary education.

    Student Orientations

    Before starting GED® classes, students must attend an orientation, which includes taking part in educational and goal-setting activities in addition to completing reading and math assessments. These assessments are designed to assist the student and instructor in determining what instruction would best serve the needs of the learner. GED® instructors will discuss various options available during orientation and will supply additional GED® test information and material as needed. Please contact the GED® office at (618)468-4141 or click below for details on upcoming orientation events.

    GED® Preparation

    Lewis and Clark Adult Education's General Education Preparation (GED®) program provides the quality basic skills education necessary to pass the GED® exam.

    Class instruction, assessments and materials used in class are all available to program participants at no charge. 

    Classes are taught by experienced adult education teachers. Instruction is based on the needs of the students in all key areas of GED® preparation, including language arts, reading, writing, social studies, science and the required U.S./Illinois Constitution.

    Individuals will benefit from taking GED® preparation classes before taking the GED® test. Adult education coordinators and teachers will help determine if you are academically ready to take the test or if you need additional class preparation. The GED® test measures important knowledge and skills expected of high school graduates.
