PSC Site for Ged® Preparation And ESL Classes

Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– The Adult Education Program at Prairie State College (PSC) serves a diverse population of adult learners both on campus and in the community. PSC’s mission is to teach basic skills needed to function effectively as a family member, citizen, worker, and lifelong learner in a changing world.

The college’s adult education program is offering free General Education Development (GED®) classes and free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes beginning Monday, September 14.

GED classes offer students an opportunity to complete high school studies and receive an equivalency certificate. The GED certificate is accepted as a substitute for a high school diploma. For more information about the GED classes call (708) 709-7880.

The ESL program is designed to help people make the transition from different countries and cultures to American society. The purpose of the program is to teach skills in speaking, reading, writing and listening to those whose native language is not English.

An assessment is required for both programs and will be held at the college’s Adult Training and Outreach Center located on the main campus at 202 S. Halsted St., Chicago Heights. The assessment is free. Dates are as follows: Tuesday, August 4 at 6 p.m.; Wednesday, August 5 at 6 p.m.; Thursday, August 6 at 9:30 p.m.; and Tuesday, August 11 at 9:30 a.m.

No appointment is necessary for the free assessment although participants are encouraged to arrive early as space is limited. No children are allowed during assessment. For more information about the ESL classes call (708) 709-7922.
