District offers high-school equivalency test prep classes

ALBANY, N.Y. (Sept. 5, 2018) – Spread the word: Starting Sept. 11, the City School District of Albany will offer classes to help people aged 21 and over prepare for the New York State high-school equivalency exam.

 

Test prep classes will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday at Tony Clement Center for Education, 395 Elk St. Classes begin Sept. 11, with ongoing enrollment throughout the school year.

 

The exam, called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), replaced the GED in 2002 as the only free exam leading to a high school equivalency diploma from the state.

 

The exam tests student skills in reading, writing, math, science and social studies.

 

During test-prep classes, each student will receive personalized instruction that is tailored to meet his or her individual needs. Certified teachers will work with students to overcome their challenges so they can successfully pass the exam and earn a high-school equivalency diploma.

 

Class size is limited to 15. You must take the test-prep class in order to take the test.  A student’s level of preparedness will determine when he or she can take the test, which will be offered at the Clement Center. Tentative exam dates are scheduled in December and June.

 

Learn more about the test and how to sign up for classes here.

 

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to work in partnership with our diverse community to engage every learner in a robust educational program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for success. The district serves about 9,500 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
