Oberlin Community Services, in collaboration with Lorain County Community College’s ABLE (Adult Basic Literacy Education), began offering GED (General Educational Development) classes in the winter of 2016. The curriculum covers mathematics, science, social studies and language arts in order to prepare students to take the GED exam which, if passed, provides students with the equivalent of a high school diploma. The curriculum is also designed to help adult learners fill the gaps they may have experienced in their education whether they remained in school or not. Students are encouraged to increase their employability by gaining their GED and become life-long learners by increasing their confidence and academic skills.
In mathematics, basic math operations are covered, then algebra, geometry and some other areas of applied mathematics.
In social studies, elements of civics and government, American history, geography and economics are all included.
In language arts, reading comprehension is stressed as well as parts of speech, grammar and writing.
In science there are units on biology, chemistry, physical science and environmental science.
