POINT PLEASANT — It’s never too late to go back to school.
Those with the Mason County Career Center (MCCC) are working to help locals who didn’t finished high school for any number of reasons who may think they’ve missed their chance to get their education back on track.
The MCCC will be offering Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday, in Room 821.
According to a release from the MCCC, ABE classes are for students ages 17 and older who wish to learn, practice, and study for the GED test. ABE provides options and opportunities for individuals wishing to improve their basic skills such as reading, math, language, employability skills (applications and resumes), computer skills, college preparation skills, a better job, or help their children with homework.
It was reported that students can enroll in the ABE classes during the regular hours listed above.
Also at the MCCC, students may take the Official Practice GED Test free of charge every Thursday at 8 a.m. Students must bring a picture ID, and those who take and pass all of the practice test can take the Official GED test at no charge. In order to do this, it was reported that a student must pass each section of the practice test with a score of 420, and an overall score of 2250, with an average of 450.
The next GED test will be offered on Dec. 12 and 13, at 4 p.m. each day. The registration deadline to take this test will be Dec. 6
