Every year, nearly 800,000 adults take the Test of General Education Development (GED) opening the doors to higher education, better job opportunities and increased standards of living. The GED Tests are designed to measure the important knowledge and skills (usually learned in high school) that adults may have obtained through experience, reading, or informal training. Many adults only need to brush up on a few skills in order to prepare for the tests. The Lafayette Parish School Systems' Adult Education Program is FREE and is the most efficient and up-to-date GED program available.
The Adult Learning Centers are excellent places for enrichment. You can work independently or in a class setting.
The Adult Education Program, often called the GED program, is designed for persons who have not completed the twelfth grade. Adult students will be eligible to receive a Louisiana State High School Equivalency Diploma.
» Individuals who are 19 years of age or above are eligible to take the General Educational Development (GED) Test without restrictions.
» Individuals between 17-18 years of age may qualify for the GED Test by taking the Official Half-Length GED Practice Test and scoring a minimum of 410 on each part with an average score of 450 or higher.
