Free classes to improve basic skills and prepare for college, career & the GED®

To get a good job today, you need basic academic and workforce skills, as well as access to high-quality higher education options. Aspire coursework will prepare you to take the GED ® test or get you ready to enter an adult certificate training program (ADP) or college (BGSU-Firelands).  We also offer English classes for speakers of other languages (ESOL).  

All classes are FREE to anyone 18-years and older (there's also a pathway for 16 and 17-year old students). The first step in the registration process is a mandatory three-session orientation. Information about the GED® Preparatory program, Orientation, and some basic GED® facts follow below. 

To schedule an orientation or for more information about any of our programs, contact Ken Hughes.
