Services include an individualized education assessment and plan, cultural enrichment, referrals to other social services agencies (if needed), field trips, and motivational speaker workshops.
NWGHA Adult Education Program students also get free transportation to and from class!

Georgia High School Equivalency Program (GED® & HiSET®)
Beginning October 2020, Georgia now offers both the HiSET® exam and GED® test to qualifying individuals. Both tests allow you to earn your high school equivalency credential. The HiSET® exam is one of three tests (GED®, HiSET®, and TASC) U.S. states and territories use to measure high school equivalency (HSE) skills. Educational Testing Services (ETS) works closely with states to ensure the HiSET® exam closely reflects the skills of a high school graduate and to provide a fair, rigorous exam.
