EAC Offering Adult Ed Classes to students seeking a GED

By Lori Dugan

Thatcher, AZ—Eastern Arizona College is offering Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes in Graham and Greenlee Counties that have been designed to help students pass the new 2014 computer-based GED (General Equivalency Diploma). Initial placement testing and information are free and a limited number of scholarships are available to Graham and Greenlee County residents who qualify.

Graham County classes are offered at EAC’s Discovery Park Campus Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays beginning at 5 p.m., while Greenlee County classes are held at the Morenci High School Library on Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The adult education courses are predominantly used to prepare students to take the General Education Development (GED) test in order to receive their high school equivalency diploma. These classes are also suitable for those who have been out of school for a long while and wish to refresh their skills, particularly in writing and math, for better job placement. Classes are given in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies.

“We have five outstanding instructors who care about each student’s success and can offer one-on-one instruction during the class time,” said EAC’s Discovery Park Campus director and coordinator of ABE, Paul Anger. “We also just had a brand new computer lab set up in the Adult Education Building at Discovery Park Campus, with six computers and an instructional area for computer based practices and tests and computer skills exercises!”

For more information or to sign up for classes call Anger at (928) 428-6260.
