The Adult Education Career Pathways Program at Savannah Technical College is designed to assist you in learning the basic and 21st century skills you need to find and succeed in the career you want. Beyond just English and a high school equivalency test, we want to provide for you a pathway to college and career readiness.

We have classes in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Liberty counties. Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon, evening and online. If you are looking for GED® testing information, you can go www.ged.com to sign up to take test or here to learn more about our testing locations. You can find a program calendar here.

5. Where can I take classes?

Go here to find out where we have classes.

6. Are there scholarships for the GED® test?

GED® testing scholarships are available for students who enroll in our classes and follow our academic plan of instruction – meeting all of the requirements.

7.  Can I fail the placement test?

Absolutely not! All the TABE or Best Literacy Test (for ESL) does is measure what you know when you take the test. The test is not pass/fail. Instead, the test helps us customize your learning experience. We are committed to helping you learn, or re-learn, the skills you need to be successful.

8. What can I do when I am done with classes?

With most jobs by the year 2020 requiring more than a high school diploma or GED, we recommend you look at one of our short-term, affordable postsecondary programs.

9. How long should the program last?

That is a hard question. It depends on (a) where your skills are right now, and (b) how much time and effort you put into it. This is different for every person. Nonetheless, you should work with your instructor to set personal goals and do everything you can to meet those goals.

The bottom line: we want you to complete this program as quickly as humanly possible.

10. What makes a successful student in a GED® or ESL class?

Be prepared. Be positive. Be on time. Be willing to develop a relationship with your instructor. They care!
