What is GED?
The GED (General Educational Development) test is a group of five subject tests which provides many students that did not finish high school an opportunity to earn an Ohio High School Equivalence Diploma. Like a regular high school diploma, the GED diploma gives the diploma holder the opportunity to obtain employment, to apply for career advancement, to pursue higher education goals, or to reach a personal goal.

What is ESOL?
ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) & Citizenship is a program designed for non-native English speaking adults who desire to improve their listening, speaking, writing, and communication skills in the area of finding and/or keeping a job. The Citizenship class prepares those who wish to take the test to obtain United States citizenship.
