Five new classroom GED courses will begin at locations throughout Randolph County during October. The program, for adults who wish to complete high school, is offered through Randolph Community College.
The new classroom GED courses are located at the following places:Tabernacle Fire Dept. - meets from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, beginning Oct. 1.
Randleman Middle School - meets from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning Oct. 2.
Randolph Community College - meets from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning Oct. 9.

Trinity High School - meets from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning Oct. 30.
The course offers 15 weeks of comprehensive instruction in the five basic areas which compose the GED or high school equivalency tests, with special emphasis on English grammar and mathematics.
The program is designed for people who feel they can learn better under a teacher than with self-instructional materials. While there is no guarantee that everyone will successfully complete the program, about 80 percent of those who completed the course of instruction this year passed the GED tests.
