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.

GED students will have weekly scheduled appointments (2) with their teachers, but can attend as often as desired. All GED coursework is available online; students may use the computers (chromebooks and laptops) at the HBAS sites as often as they wish (open hours) and are also encouraged to work from home.

PLEASE NOTE | As a WIOA, Title II funded agency, All GED students at Huntington Beach Adult School are required to participate in CASAS testing throughout their preparation for GED.
