CBC Pleasanton offering free GED classes

PLEASANTON, TX—The Coastal Bend College Adult Basic Education (ABE) Program at the CBC Pleasanton site is proud to offer free General Educational Development (GED) classes to the community this fall. The ABE Program provides instruction in reading, writing, and mathematics to adults who are seeking to improve their skills and knowledge in their personal and family lives, in the workplace, and in the community. The program also focuses on improving adult literacy skills that are often necessary for individuals transitioning into the labor market or higher education.

Classes are offered in basic skills, GED preparation, and English Language Learning (ESL) for non-native speakers. Instruction is provided through face-to-face classes or distance learning (Internet based). Basic skills classes are offered in seven or nine week sessions four times a year, while ESL and distance learning/Internet classes are offered throughout the year with open enrollment.

The free courses are made possible by a ABE Innovation Grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, as well as other federal and state grant programs. Persons who are interested in registering for any of the skills courses are encouraged to visit the CBC Pleasanton site on 1411 Bensdale Road on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Registration is open from now until November 1, and classes are scheduled into 2014.
