English Language Acquisition (ELA)

ELA Classes are available for adult non-native speakers of English. Six levels of classes are offered including reading, writing, speaking, and listening. New students will need to schedule an interview; students will enter the program based on class availability, pending a valid test score on program assessments. If classes are full, students will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when openings occur. A valid, current, government-issued picture ID and proof of residency are required. Interviews are by appointment only. Please call 757-648-6050 to schedule your interview.

GED®/Adult Basic Education

The Adult Learning Center’s PRE-GED®/ABE and Fast Track GED® classes are open to adults who are age 18 and older and who are not enrolled in high school. A valid and current government-issued photo identification is required for proof of age and identity.

Students interested in enrolling in PRE-GED®/ABE and Fast Track GED® classes will participate in a placement evaluation and take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE). TABE scores are used to determine in which GED® class students are placed to help them prepare to take the GED® exam.

There is a $5.00 fee for the placement evaluation, and the TABE test takes a total of five hours. Due to adjusted operations at this time as a result of COVID-19, components of the TABE test will be administered to students remotely. In order to take the TABE test remotely, students will need access to a computer with Google Chrome and a webcam.

If you are interested in enrolling in PRE-GED®/ABE and Fast Track GED® classes, please call the Adult Learning Center at 757-648-6050 to ask about the availability of registration appointments.
