Ready to take the GED? Sign up now for next month's testing session...

The deadline to complete preregistration (including paying testing fees, presenting your valid gov't-issued photo ID and Social Security card, and so on), is at noon two working days prior to the scheduled GED Testing Orientation date each month. Please inquire at the Grenada Adult Education Center front office soon if you need to take the GED for the first time or retest next month. Space is limited to 14 examinees per subject area test.

Make a Difference Day - Sat., Oct. 24

The Grenada Adult Education Center is hosting a “Support our Local Troops” supply drive and new book drive for the soldiers’ children aged preschool to early teen for our 2009 Make a Difference Day project.

We are requesting donated items for soldiers such as personal care items, hand sanitizer, travel size toilet paper, eye drops, shoes insoles, and socks. Some other items might include assorted hard candies, chapstick, and cough drops.
