ALA provides free classes which prepare students for entering the workforce, training programs, college or taking the GED® Test. To learn more about the GED® Test, please access the GED Training and Testing tabs. Students with a high school diploma or GED, qualify for our classes if they wish to improve or ”brush up” their academic skills.
ALA provides free GED® preparation classes during the day and evening at various locations in Beaver County. Students can work one-on-one with a tutor as available. Some students may qualify to take free GED® classes online through the Pennsylvania Distance Learning Project. Testing in our office is required to enroll in all of these classes.
GEDReady® Practice Test
ALA students are provided the opportunity to take a free GEDReady® Test , the official practice test which normally costs $24. The GEDReady® Test will indicate how likely the student is to pass the actual test. After the practice test is complete, a customized study guide can be created for each student.
The GED® test is a four-part computerized test. The four test subject areas are: Reasoning through Language Arts, Science, Social Studies and Math. The cost to the student for each test component is $30 and the total cost of the test is $120. Students may take one test component at a time and, once a subject area is passed, that subject will not need to be retaken.
