The length of time a student is at Grace Outreach varies. Some students with excellent attendance, high-functioning work and study habits, and aptitude can be ready in as little as two months. The typical student is ready to take the TASC exam after 3-4 months of study.
If a student took the GED exam before 2014, the different sub-section scores will count towards passing the TASC exam. Grace Outreach works with lots of students in this situation, and will offer her a specialized schedule to focus only on section(s) she needs to pass.
Grace Outreach will help you sign up for an exam at any one of 6 sites around NYC. The student and teachers sit together to choose the appropriate date, the student completes some paperwork, and GO still will help get the paperwork to the test location.
Most Grace Outreach students, when they begin, feel that Math is their weakest subject. You are not alone. We are excellent at teaching math, and have skilled teachers and skilled tutors to help students, working in groups and one-on-one. The keys to a student doing well in math are a) attending school every day and b) doing homework
Students can utilize the Career Prep area of Grace Outreach to work on finding employment. We can help with the resume, the interview skills, how to look around on line, and many other areas. It is up to the student to lead the process; we do not find a job "for" a student.
Any student can attend the City University of New York (CUNY) with an equivalency diploma. The College Prep program at Grace Outreach will help the student to take the remedial/COMPASS exams, which can allow the student to begin college with only the for-credit classes.
