Adult Vocational Services (AVS) PROGAMS


The General Educational Development (GED) test offers people who did not finish high school the opportunity to earn high school credentials. Most post-high school training institutions and employers require a high school diploma or a High School Equivalence Diploma as a prerequisite to admission, employment or promotion. Akron Public Schools, through its Adult Basic Literacy and Education Program and Adult Vocational Services Program, provides GED preparation classes and administers the GED test.

GED Preparation:
Free GED preparation classes in reading, mathematics, English and writing skills are offered for adults, 18 years of age or older, at day and evening ABLE sites throughout the Akron area. For times and locations, call 330/848-0037.

GED Testing:
Akron Public Schools has operated as a GED test site for a number of years. The test is given 17 times during the year. It is administered during a two-day period generally on a Monday and Tuesday evening from 4pm to 9pm.

If you are interested in more information about the GED testing dates and sites, please contact Adult Vocational Services at 330/761-1385. The office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
