Students can get assistance at no cost to help propel their path toward college and a career
Cheyenne, WY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/10/2011 -- CollegeAmerica announced today the launch of its GED Test tutoring program in Cheyenne. The tutoring program is offered at no cost and is designed to help bring enrollees without a diploma a step closer to their dream jobs, by helping them earn the GED credential required to start college.
A GED can be the critical first step in gaining the real-world knowledge and skills necessary to start a career in today’s marketplace. Current U.S. Census Bureau data shows that unemployment rates are tied directly to levels of educational attainment,1 with more than 15 percent of people without a high school diploma unemployed.
CollegeAmerica GED Test tutoring includes the following benefits:
• Knowledgeable instructors
• Flexible tutoring hours
• Individual attention
• Complimentary study tools
• Motivational support system
• Targeted practice exams
• GED Test registration assistance
As an additional benefit, when students are ready to take their GED Test, CollegeAmerica will cover the cost of their test fee.
The program was launched in 2009 at the Stevens-Henager Provo/Orem campus in Utah, an affiliate of CollegeAmerica. Due to the popularity of the program, all CollegeAmerica campuses in Wyoming, Arizona (Flagstaff-main and Phoenix-branch), and Colorado (Denver-main, Colorado Springs-branch, and Fort Collins-branch), and affiliated campuses in California (California College San Diego-main, National City-satellite of CCSD), Idaho (Stevens-Henager College Idaho Falls-branch*, Boise-branch, and Nampa-satellite of Boise), and Utah (Stevens-Henager College Ogden/West Haven-main, Logan-branch, Salt Lake City/Murray-branch, St. George-branch, Layton-satellite of Ogden/West Haven and Lehi-satellite of Provo/Orem) will offer GED Test tutoring.
“The GED Academy reports that 39 million Americans do not have a high school diploma.2 The goal of this tutoring program is to assist some of that number in obtaining their GED diploma,” said Debbi Potts, campus director at CollegeAmerica, Cheyenne.
Students can be tutored in all the GED Test areas, including English, Social Studies, Science, and Math. For more information, visit www.GEDTutoring.org. The GED Test program is a community service and is not an accredited program.
