Over thirty students have opened doors to new opportunities this year by obtaining a GED in classes located at Antonelli College in Hattiesburg.  These individuals now qualify for better jobs, promotions at current jobs, and entry into higher education.

Both day and evening classes are available free of charge at Antonelli College for individuals to obtain a GED.  These classes feature flexible schedules and individualized instruction that allows busy adults to attend classes at their convenience and allows them to progress at their own speed.

Instruction is provided in a “one-on-one” style.  “Our Adult Education Class is a lot like an old fashioned school room.  No two students are working on the same skills or levels and individualized instruction meets the needs of the individual rather than teaching everyone the same material at once,” stated Cathy Nevels, GED instructor.

Jacob Novak, a current student at Antonelli College, attended day GED classes.  “The GED classes I attended at Antonelli College worked well with my schedule and allowed me to prepare for the exam with ease.  The transition from the GED classes to college classes was simple and I received much help along the way, “stated Novak. 

GED testing is offered once a month at the Harper-Wallin Family Education Center in downtown Hattiesburg.  Pre-registration needs are met before the student exits the classroom for testing.  There is a planned change in the GED test that will take effect in 2012.  Students who have taken, but have not completed the test battery will be required to begin testing again if they do not obtain their GED before the test changes.
