ABLE/GED & Basic Skills classes are free of charge and available to everyone! Classes focus on improving reading, math, writing, science and social studies skills. They are appropriate for anyone preparing to take the GED test or for those who just
need to sharpen their basic skills for workplace advancement or higher education. Those who complete their GED are invited to participate in our Graduation Ceremony!
We offer new student orientations twice a month at our four main sites: Vanguard, Sentinel, Ottawa County Resource Centre, and Fostoria City Schools. During orientation, students complete paperwork, examine their learning styles, set goals, and take assessments to determine academic strengths and weaknesses. Once this is complete, students enter the class and conference with their instructors to determine their individual learning plan. Call a local learning center to schedule and attend an orientation: Fremont (419.334.6901 ext. 2701 or ext. 2703), Tiffin (419.448.5084), Oak Harbor (419.898.3688 ext. 270), or Fostoria (419.436.4163).
