Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) April 17, 2006
High school dropouts in this nation are faced with dramatically lower earning potential over their lifetimes without a high school diploma or GED. Comcourse is now offering free online GED preparation for adults wishing to pass the GED test and pursue college education.
Comcourse also helps deliver an online high school diploma program. These courses are offered by Liberty High School, which is approved by the State of Vermont and has delivered high school education to students nationwide for nearly 25 years.
"A diploma alone means an average of $717 more per month for an average worker," stated Fiachra O'Sullivan, Vice President of Comcourse, adding that "a diploma results in approximately $350,000 in increased lifetime earnings, on average."
"By offering adult students a second chance through our site at http://www.gedforfree.com we feel that we can help move America away from becoming the dropout nation recently portrayed in Time Magazine and on The Oprah Winfrey Show " stated Comcourse CEO James Chellis.
The site offers 200 pages of coursework, which covers all of the key areas of the GED program, and includes a free ged practice test.
The program is funded entirely through a minimal amount of advertising; students are not required to pay anything for the course. It is based upon the best components found in a survey of current GED training programs.
Prospective students need only complete a brief, one page application, and are immediately provided with a username and password which give access to the full site.
"With the support of local and national GED non-profit educational centers, Comcourse is able to provide the most extensive on-demand free GED preparation program available today," said James Chellis, Comcourse CEO. The online GED classes are delivered in Comcourse's industry-leading virtual learning environment, the Comcourse LMS.
