LISBON FALLS – General Educational Development testing is offered on a regular schedule year-round at Lisbon Adult Education. The program offers adults the opportunity to earn a nationally accepted high school credential by taking a series of five examinations.

Successful completion of the examinations leads to a GED diploma, which is accepted by colleges and universities nationwide and is accepted by employers as well.

The process is simple and free. The five subject areas are reading, writing, science, mathematics and social studies. Adults first take a pretest in each subject area. Those who pass the pretests can take the final examinations.

A GED prep class is available for individuals who find they need to study a particular subject prior to taking the final exam. Assistance is also available in the Plato Learning Lab, which is a computer-based system.

Accommodations are available in GED testing for adults with documented physical disabilities as well as learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity’s disorder and emotional or psychological disabilities. Each request is considered on an individual basis. The exams are available in English, Spanish and French. There is also a large-type edition and a Braille edition.

Students must be at least 18 to begin taking final GED exams. Anyone who does not have a high school diploma and who is not enrolled in high school is eligible to take the GED.

Testing is offered from 2:30 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at Lisbon High School. For more information, visit the Adult Education office located in the high school or call 353-3037.
