Philadelphia FIGHT offers free GED preparation classes at ICJ, 21 S. 12th St, 7th floor. Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 PM. Tokens are provided.
The class size is small, fewer than 15 students at any one time, which enables the instructor to provide focused attention. Class work is based on the five topics covered in the GED test: reading, writing, social studies, science, and math. There is a combination of group and individual activities. Classes may be full because of the small size but you can contact us at any time to find out if there is an available slot.
Students move forward at their own pace, so the amount of time that they need in order to be ready to take the GED test depends on the individual. Some students need a few months, some need years. Of course, the more regularly someone comes to class, the quicker they will be ready for the GED test.
If you are interested in joining this class, or if you would like more information, contact Holly Pester, firstname.lastname@example.org or (215) 985-4448 x 171.
