General Education Development (GED) Preparation Academy

The general education development program provides students with the skills necessary to prepare for the GED test in a nontraditional, individual and self-paced format. After passing all four of the GED tests, the student receives a High School Equivalency certificate from the Texas Education Agency. Because of the individualized and self-paced approach, completion is dependent on the student's attendance and efforts. You determine how quickly you attain your GED.

Student will receive guidance and career building skills in addition to academic preparation. Students must participate in workforce preparation activities such as financial literacy, career exploration; and development of career advancement pathways.



Our next session for the GED Program will begin this Fall Semester on an open enrollment basis. For more information, please contact Mario Ortiz at 956-295-3716 or e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
