D.L. Barnes Building, 3750 Far Hills Ave. Kettering, OH 45429
Next Orientation Dates

Morning Orientation -  Part 1 November 2, 2017 
                                          Part 2 November 3, 2017
Evening Orientation -  Part 1  November 9, 2017
                                         Part 2  November 14, 2017 
 
**All students must complete both parts of orientation to complete**
 
 
During orientation, students take the TABE assessment to figure out their strongest and weakest areas in math, reading, and language (grammar).  All students complete orientation at our Kettering site, and they will be given information on the available classes to help determine the one that best fits their schedule (AM or PM).  If a scheduling conflict comes up after completing orientation or beginning classes, students can switch to the class that fits their needs, they just need to inform their instructor or call our office and inform the coordinator of their situation.  This is a regular occurrance, so making these adjustments is not a problem.


You can do it and we can help!
 
GED Classes in Kettering:

Morning GED classes will meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 to 12 with split instruction for math levels.

Evening GED classes will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8:30 with split instruction as well.  These classes are split based on student levels for Math and Reading/Language, featuring GED Core Skills and GED Advanced Skills.  This will help students make greater strides in a short time frame.
