Program offers Hernando County adults help with GED preparation

BROOKSVILLE — Adults who, for whatever reason, never completed high school may be inspired by the beginning of a new school year to do just that.

Help is available through H.E.A.R.T. (Hernando's Education for Adult Readers in Training) Literacy and the Hernando County School Board.

Prospective students can receive help preparing for the various parts of the General Education Development (GED) test or learn the dates when the test will be administered by contacting H.E.A.R.T. Literacy at 801 N Broad St. Brooksville, FL 34601; (352) 797-7018 or (352) 797-7118.

The test's subject areas are language arts-writing, language arts-reading, social studies, science and mathematics. Prospective students are encouraged to take the TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) Test to help determine their readiness levels for the GED test.

For those ready to take the GED test, registration must be in person and takes about 30 minutes. Requirements are a government-issued photo identification with a current address and a Social Security card. The full test fee is $70. Each section is $14.

There are four locations available for preparation. Three offer some child care. Locations and times are:

• The H.E.A.R.T. Literacy office in Brooksville; 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

• Grace World Outreach Church, 20366 Cortez Blvd. Brooksville, 9-11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Free child care available for ages 2-5.
