South Florida State College has an option for people who dropped out of high school and now want the satisfaction of completing their diploma.

SFSC’s Adult Education Department helps students earn a State of Florida high school diploma through the General Educational Development (GED) process. Because classes are offered during morning, afternoon, and evening hours at various SFSC locations, students can create a course of study that meets their individual needs and allows them to work at their own pace.

In August, SFSC’s Adult Education is hosting two open houses that explain how the GED program works and signs up students for classes.

The first will be on Monday, Aug. 10, at 6 p.m., in Building 200 at the SFSC Lake Placid Center, 500 E. Interlake Blvd., Lake Placid. Another will be on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at 6 p.m., at The Teacherage, 501 Lemon St., Sebring.

“We’ll explain what the program is, how to get involved, and how learning is individualized for each person,” said John Rousch, director, Adult Education. “If you don’t have a high school diploma, now is the time to take that step, because career and lifestyle need a foundation in education. It’s an investment in your future.”
