Enrollment Requirments

Educational Requirements

Students must first complete a placement test and writing sample. The placement test is a reading, applied mathematics and mathematics computation skills inventory. Students whose test scores indicate they need further instruction before entering the distance learning classes are referred to an in-person adult education center.

Technology Requirements

Students must be able to use email, navigate on the Internet, and create word processing documents.  Students must have regular access to a computer with an active broadband Internet connection. Prior to beginning courses, all participants are required to attend an orientation session which includes a demonstration of the online systems used.

Personal Requirements

Perhaps the most important requirement for distance learning success is the student’s ability to work independently.  A high level of motivation, along with the commitment to complete course assignments on time and to stay on task for the entire session is at least as important as high test scores.  Students are fully responsible for completing the course work on schedule.  Students who are self-motivated and who are willing to dedicate 10 to 12 hours a week per course are the most likely to succeed and to achieve the goal of the Groves high school diploma or the GED endorsement.
