Spring is here and the summer is just around the corner. If you would like to earn your GED or participate in the graduation ceremony, there is still time.

Free adult education classes are held at the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library through the Archuleta County Education Center. We are starting to plan for this year’s GED graduation ceremony, which will be held at the library on May 30. It’s not too late to earn your high school equivalency and participate. Thanks to a grant from LPEA, we also have some scholarships available to pay for the actual GED testing.

Adult education classes for GED preparation are held Monday through Thursday at the Ruby M. Sisson Memorial Library. The times for tutoring are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2-6 p.m. and Thursdays from 2-7:30 p.m.

The GED preparation course helps students build the skills needed to pass the GED test and prepare for trade school, college and the workplace. For students, we assess the current skill level and design lessons to build skills. With one-on-one tutoring and access to official GED practice tests, we strive to help you succeed in your goals and in walking in the graduation ceremony.

Being part of the adult education class includes help locating and enrolling in continuing education or college classes, providing help with enrollment tests, finding scholarships and filing for federal financial aid, or the FAFSA.

The future is yours and the hardest part is walking through the door.

If you have any questions, please call the library at 264-2209 and ask for Mark Wardell during class times.
