Basic Skills Academy - Math and English Preparatory Class

$50
Calendar Jan 19, 2022 at 6 pm, runs for 10 weeks

Do you have your high school diploma and are in need of basic skill sets in math and English that Father Time has helped us lose?  The East Haven Adult Learning Center understands the need to reacquire and define old skills we may have misplaced.  We’ve all struggled with the occasional misplaced comma, or the run-on sentence, not to mention the inability to multiply and divide fractions and decimals.  Let us help you refine these skills in classes that are made to be student friendly for those in need.  These old/new skills can help you return to college, find advancement in your present job, or give you the confidence to help your child with their homework.  Our instructors will lead you through a series of sequential steps that will bolster your confidence and self-esteem to tackle life-long learning. Don’t let your inability to remember a few simple rules impact your future. Come meet with us on Tuesday evenings to get you on the road to success. 

NEDP - National External Diploma Program

Free

with Nettie Rank

Calendar Jan 19, 2022 at 6 pm

The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) was created to help mature students connect their real-life and occupational skills with academic abilities required to meet national high school standards. The NEDP is designed to help those candidates who need a high school diploma, but choose to not go through traditional high school credit classes or the GED program. Instead it offers a more flexible time schedule and independence from traditional classes and does not focus on tests as does the GED. Consequently, it allows the candidate multiple opportunities to correct the assignments and therefore, learn at his/her own pace.

NEDP applicants will meet with an Advisor to review the program and complete a series of diagnostics. If necessary, the candidate may use the resources of the EHALC’s ABE program if any remediation is necessary. Once diagnostics are completed, the NEDP client will be assigned an assessor to guide them through the Generalized Assessment process. A series of activities from eight Competency Areas will be completed online at home. The client will then schedule weekly meetings with their assessor for an In-Office review and to correct the completed work. Once all the competencies are demonstrated, an East Haven Adult High School diploma will be awarded.

The candidate’s skill level at the time of enrollment, how much review of basic skills is needed, and how closely the client adheres to the timeframe set by the program, will determine how long the process will take. In most instances it takes most clients between 7 - 9 months to complete the program.

All NEDP information sessions, diagnostics, work sessions and in-office checks will be by appointment only for the foreseeable future.
