Adult Basic and Secondary Education

Nationwide Hundreds of Thousands Earn the GED Each Year!

A GED is equivalent to a high school diploma. LCC at Cottage Grove continues to offer GED preparation.

GED (General Education Development)
The GED tests give those who did not graduate from high school the opportunity to earn a high school equivalency certificate. Recognized nationwide by employers and educators, the GED certificate has increased education and employment opportunities for millions of adults since 1942. Lane's GED program prepares students to pass the GED exams. Practice testing is provided to determine readiness and to assess particular areas of needed improvement. Graduates of the GED preparation program are honored at the annual college graduation ceremony and are eligible to apply for scholarships.

College Preparation
Classes offered through the ABSE Department prepare college bound students for the college placement tests in reading, writing and math. Students studying ABSE classes raise college placement test scores; thus saving time and money.
