GED Preparation *FREE*

HBAS GED preparation is FREE as in absolutely NO OUT OF POCKET COST


*Students must be 18 years or older (and no longer attending high school) to enroll.


ASE Registration

HBAS uses Aztec, an online software program, for GED classes.


HBAS preparation courses are designed to prepare students to pass all sections of the GED. Students at HBAS begin by taking a diagnostic assessment that identifies their academic strengths and weaknesses, and coursework is assigned based on those results.


We found that students are most successful when they spend at least 7 hours a week on their classes. Students who spend less than 7 hours over a 3-week average need to speak to their teacher.


Tier System

Students who spend less than 1 hour of online attendance in a week will be deactivated.
Tier 1.) Students who spend between 1 - 7 hours of online attendance need to contact their teacher for a one-on-one meeting. 
Tier 2.) Students who spend 7 or more hours of online attendance in a week are on track for graduation.
