Adult Education & GED
Enrollment for Classes
In order to enroll for Adult Education Classes, you will need to call 601-825-5040 and schedule an orientation/enrollment time.
All NEW students MUST attend an orientation/enrollment. Students will need to be at orientation when it begins, will need to have a picture ID, and if they are under 18 years of age they will need to have proof of withdrawal from their last school.
(Time varies due to time it takes individuals to test)
Orientation requires the student to complete registration paperwork and take an assessment test. The assessment testing may require the student to return on another day to complete testing. Upon completion of testing students will be given their results and be informed of their class time.
For more information, please call 601-825-5040 or email Adult.Education@rcsd.ms.
Adult Education / High School Equivalency
Free Adult Education / High School Equivalency classes (GED classes) are offered throughout the county to anyone 16 years and older and not enrolled in any K-12 school.
The purpose of these classes is to raise basic educational skills and prepare student to be successful with passing a High School Equivalency test.
To attend class students must attend an enrollment/orientation.
Most people equate adult education with the GED. Mississippi now recognizes 2 test provider options for High School Equivalency: GED and HiSET. They are both accredited and approved.
A student that successfully completes EITHER of these tests will earn a Mississippi High School Equivalency Diploma.
Many businesses and job applications ask about High School Diploma or GED, but HiSET should also be accepted. They are BOTH High School Equivalencies.
Credentials and transcripts are available to graduates through www.diplomasender.com or by calling (855) 876-3774.
