GED Bridge to College Careers Program

The NCTN Promising Practice Series presents detailed descriptions of strategies from the field that are designed to promote the successful transition of adult basic education students to postsecondary education.

LaGuardia Community College initiated the GED Bridge to College Careers Program in 2007 to improve GED pass rates and postsecondary transition of adult students. The 14-week program serves adults, ages 19 and older, and integrates GED preparation with rigorous college-level material using a career-focused curriculum. Contextualized coursework investigates themes in health care or business, and the world of work, and is designed as a springboard to either college or vocational training. World Education, 2013.
