For the second consecutive year, Holmes Community College met 100 percent of its GED federal performance measures, a feat not easily accomplished.
The GED test provides a uniform measure of high school achievement and is nationally recognized as a measure of high school knowledge and skills.
The Holmes Community College Adult Basic Education/GED staff serves approximately 650 students throughout our district. The levels of instruction range from literacy to pre-GED level.
"We have been successful in being the largest graduating class to enter our college and are striving to keep that as a goal with the new computer-based GED test in place," said Nancy McRight, director of the Attala Educational Center. "In an effort to do that, we are now testing each Monday at the Attala Educational Center and are excited to be opening a full service testing center on our Ridgeland Campus in August."
With 12 classes offered in many different formats, such as day or evening classes and classes held in correctional facilities, Holmes Community College continues to meet students where they are, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to further their education.
Among teaching the classes, administering the exam and recruit the GED recipients into Holmes Community College, the program helps the students with enrollment and the financial aid process here at Holmes.
