Throughout April, the Month of the Military Child, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) student artwork will be featured at Lynnhaven Mall. Now in its 11th year, "The Art of Being a Military Child" showcases students' artistic interpretations of what it means to be a military dependent, including deployments, transitions, patriotism, family and school. It is the culmination of a contest open to all VBCPS students to which more than 700 art entries were submitted.
The G E D® / A B E program offers day and evening classes at the following times: 8:30-11:00 AM (Monday to Thursday), 12:15-2:45 PM (Monday to Thursday) and 6:30-9:00 PM (Monday and Wednesday). All students (new and returning) who are interested in enrolling in G E D® / A B E day or evening classes are required to attend a placement evaluation. Students who are eligible for G E D® classes based on their placement test scores will need to attend an orientation session to complete the registration process.
At placement testing, students will take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE). TABE scores are used to determine the levels of math and reading classes in which students are placed to help them prepare to take the G E D® exam. The TABE test takes approximately four (4) hours. Students will receive a copy of their TABE scores when scores are available. Students will be contacted by ALC staff following placement testing regarding their eligibility to take classes.
Orientation sessions, testing, and classes are held at the Adult Learning Center located at 5100 Cleveland Street in Virginia Beach, 23462
