Members of our Literacy and a Basic Skills Class can begin working on GED material in any subject area once they have the skills they need to succeed.

Online Secondary School Credit

Our community partners at Contact North and Quinte Adult Education allow us to provide high school credits online. This is a good option for mature students, or people who only need a few credits to graduate. It is also a great choice for people who need a specific credit in order to get into college programs with a GED. Members of our Literacy and Basic Skills Class can begin working on any high school credit once they have the skills to succeed.

Employment Services

Members of our Literacy and Basic Skills Class who wish to enter the work force directly have access to our Employment Services Team once they are confident that they have the skills to succeed in their employment and career goals.
