Adult Education program at Pellissippi State offers free GED preparation

Thinking about earning your GED this year? The Adult Education program at Pellissippi State Community College can give you the help you need to succeed. Even better, GED support at Pellissippi State is free.

GED preparation is available both day and evening hours at several locations throughout Knoxville. Enrollment is open to everyone, and classes are taught by small-group or one-on-one instruction.

Even if you’ve been out of school for years, there’s no reason to fear the GED, says Joan Newman, director of Academic Testing and Adult Education.

“Approximately 70 percent of adults who take the GED pass,” she said. “Unfortunately, only about 1.5 percent of all adults who did not graduate from high school even attempt it. The odds really are in your favor, especially when you’re prepared.”

Pellissippi State also offers a free practice test that, according to Newman, provides a reliable predictor of actual GED scores.

Don’t put it off any longer. To find out more or to sign up, call (865) 694-6400.
