ISDA’s Community Learning Center and the GED Program are housed in the beautifully renovated historic Curley School cafeteria. Our GED program currently offers both afternoon and evening sessions. The afternoon sessions meet Monday – Thursday from 10 AM to 3 PM and helps prepare Native American, Mexican, and Anglo youth, aged 16-24 to pass the newly revised, on-line GED test. Our evening session, which also offers Adult Basic Education instruction, meets Wednesdays from 5-8 PM. Laptops are available for students to use in improving their test scores via on-line practice tests and activities. Students work at their own pace following individualized learning plans. Other learning activities offered include art instruction, movement games, field trips, and cooking. In addition, a Work-Study option provides students the opportunity to develop important job skills while earning a stipend through placement at a local sponsoring business.
