American Career College Will Present GED Certificates To 50 ACC GED Preparation Program Graduates

LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--

American Career College is set to graduate 50 students from its no-cost GED (General Education Development) preparation program this Friday, November 16th, at ACC's Los Angeles campus at 4021 Rosewood Ave.

The program, which has been preparing students for the high school equivalency exam for more than 10 years, is offered to qualified community members, some of whom will go on to pursue health care degrees at ACC, as well as academic programs at other colleges and universities.

"Our aim is to make no-cost GED preparation and testing available to qualified members of our local community," said Tom McNamara, President of American Career College. "In an age when one in four students drops out of high school, we want to encourage as many people as possible to complete the program and earn a GED, which can open up opportunities for higher education and improved career prospects."

Graduates of the GED program are able to apply directly to ACC's wide range of health care diploma and degree programs, from respiratory therapy and pharmacy technician to dental assisting and vocational nursing, and they are eligible to apply for scholarships to ACC. Many who complete the GED preparation program go on to enrol at one of ACC's three Southern California campuses, located in Los Angeles, Ontario, and Orange (News - Alert) County.


ACC's GED program provides individualized scheduling, teaching, tutoring, study materials, and practice testing in a comfortable classroom environment and at no cost. Those who pass the California two-day GED exam receive the equivalent of a high school diploma.

The GED program is now available at all three ACC campuses. Each has a library of GED-relevant material and computers for self-paced tutoring. The program uses adaptive learning technology to assess students' skill levels and determine which test subjects have been mastered and which need further attention.
