GED Honors

Did you know you can earn a GED with Honors? A GED with honors represents the highest possible achievement and shows the test-taker that he/she is career and college ready. Scoring of the GED is on a scale of 100-200. A score of 150 is the passing mark on each of the four subject areas, and a score of 170 or higher will earn a "with honors".

Lost your Diploma? Need a Transcript?

The GED Testing Service is the place to go for official transcripts and diplomas. Go to http://www.gedtestingservice.com for a one-stop shop for transcripts, diploma, and scheduling the GED test. The site also offers links to GED practice tests and more.

Online Adult School

For many people, it is difficult to physically attend school, because they are busy just trying to make ends meet with work and family. Calhoun County Adult School is assisting those needing alternative school hours. We have joined with FATDEC (Florida Adult and Technical Distance Educational Consortium) . This will allow adult students who have access to an internet connected computer the ability to choose their own hours and still have access to a personalized instructor and optional on-line lessons done in "real time". 

While this is primarily an online program, some face-to-face contact will be required, but is minimal. This face-to-face contact will consist of a required TABE testing and distance education orientation, which will take approximately 5 hours to complete. Official GED Practice Tests will also be given face to face. The rest of the coursework or GED preparation can be completed from the comfort of students' own homes or any where there is an internet connected computer.

Under 18 and Thinking about the GED?

A candidate for the GED test must be at least 18 years of age on the date of the test, unless there are extraordinary circumstances (determined by the Superintendent or his designee) that determine a student may take the GED after reaching the age of 16. Please contact the Adult School for additional information.
