CAC’s GED or HSE (High School Equivalency) classes are designed to help students prepare to take the 5 GED or High School Equivalency tests.

Students must be at least 16 years old and not enrolled in school to register for class, and to take the GED test.

What do they look like?

Online classes available in two methods:

  1. Live (synchronous) – where students and the teacher all join a virtual classroom at the same time

OR

  1. Not-live (asynchronous) classes – where you schedule appointments to work with the teacher or visit their office hours.

Starting in August, some in person classes will be offered at the Casa Grande Center and at the Aravaipa Campus.

Classes are divided into two skill bases

Math: teaches everything you need to know about passing the GED Math test and prepares students for college level course work.

Reading: teaches everything you need to know about the Social Studies, Science, and Language Arts GED test and students for college level reading and writing.

When can I take class?

Registration for August classes is under the registration tab.

How much does the class cost?
