By Lexi Heninger

Thatcher, AZ—Discovery Park Campus is offering classes for adults who are interested in enhancing their basic education skills in preparation for successfully earning their GED certificate or in participating in the English Language Acquisition program.

The GED is an equivalency examination that allows students who have not completed High School to earn a credential similar to a diploma. The EAC Discovery Park Campus Adult Education program covers the five curriculum areas that are covered on the GED test, language arts (English), reading, math, science, and social studies. “Completing the GED exam provides not only a strong sense of accomplishment and personal worth, but also the ability to participate in College and higher level classes that will increase your potential for improved employment opportunities,” says Discovery Park Campus Director, Paul Anger.

The Adult Education classes are offered in open-entry, open-exit style nine-week terms, Tuesday through Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m. Standard college tuition rates apply for these classes. A limited number of tuition scholarships are available on a first-come, first-served basis to qualified residents.

A free, pre-enrollment assessment test is offered to place students in classes that will provide them with the best chances of success. Also offered are English Language Acquisition for Adults (ELAA) classes that make use of computer assisted learning to guide English language learners to actually communicate in the English language.

“If you are looking to start the New Year off right, look to the EAC Discovery Park Campus Adult Education Program,” says Anger. “You will gain more self-esteem, possibly more pay or a better job, you will be an example to those you care about, and you will be the success that you know you can be.”
