GED Preparation Courses

At PALC, our GEDReady - GED preparation courses are taught by experienced and qualified instructors who specialize in teaching the areas necessary to pass your GED, including critical reading, writing, math, and science. Our teachers make each session interactive, creating a fun learning environment.

Our GEDReady classes are tuition-free and delivered in-person. Our instructors work with each student to create a personalized learning plan that will focus on the skill specific areas you need to work on to prepare you for the GED test.

PALC’s GEDReady classes run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Our classes are taught in-person so we can provide the best learning experience possible. We offer continuous intake so you can start when space becomes available rather than waiting for the start of a new session.

College Preparation Classes

For students who have not completed high school and want to attend college, we provide two college preparation class options. The first is our GEDReady program which we discussed previously. The second is CollegeReady, an academic upgrading program that prepares you for the Mature Student Test at college.

While the Mature Student Test does not provide a student with a GED, it does allow for them to attend certain colleges without a secondary school diploma. The exact tests you’ll have to pass will depend upon the program and college you choose. At PALC, we’ll help you prepare for your Mature Student Test, allowing you to be more confident in your ability to pass the test and start college.

We offer both part-time and full-time classes, making our classes easier to attend and complete. Additionally, we offer continuous intake, allowing our students to start whenever space is available.
