To those who qualify, scholarships have been made available to cover the cost of the GED exam through a grant received from the Dollar General Family Literacy Foundation.

Free transportation has been made available through Rides Mass Transit District to ensure students are able to arrive to their classes.

“SIC’s GED department has wonderful, dedicated instructors who work with each student to meet their personal educational needs,” said Angie Dunk, ABE/GED Coordinator and Data Manager at SIC. “The instructors help the students find their strengths and weaknesses and give them the tools and materials the student will need to help them succeed.”
