Your path to success includes graduation. We will support you every step of the way!
Sometimes traditional school isn’t the right fit, and that’s okay. If you’ve decided to study at home for your GED, we can help. We offer reading, writing, and math classes for young adults age 16-24 who want to improve their skills or prepare for taking the GED. A GED is a real high school diploma from the State of Florida. Learn more about the GED here. You can also learn more about money, health, computers, and job skills. You set the goal, and we’ll help you reach it!
What happens after graduation? We celebrate our graduates every Spring with a graduation ceremony at the Celebration of Success. Once you’ve earned your GED we can connect you with college and career programs at FSCJ, Eckerd Connect or many other partners around town to help you reach your goals. There are so many opportunities!
