The SAU Tech Adult Education Center serves Calhoun, Columbia, Dallas and Ouachita Counties. We believe that education is a lifelong process and does not end when you leave public school. Adult education serves adult learners through adult basic education classes, which are designed for adults who function up to the 7.0 grade level on the TABE. General adult education classes prepare adults who score at the 7 to 12 grade level on the TABE.

GED® Program
In Arkansas, anyone who is 16 years or older, who are not enrolled or graduated from high school, and who meets the state requirements can earn an Arkansas High School Diploma by passing the official GED® test. The GED® test is computer based and measures skills in four areas: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Social Studies, and Science. Instruction for this class is based on the student’s entry level and their needs. The format for classes are Managed Enrolled and Open Entry/ Open Exit. We offer Fast Track versions of this class and are proud to say that our success rate is high for students wishing to enroll in this program. Our students graduate with SAU Tech each year in May and have a great graduation ceremony.

Fast Track GED® Classes
Our Fast Track GED classes are Managed Enrolled courses where students register and have start and end dates with a schedule to follow. This format offers group and individual instruction as well as an opportunity for Distance Learning. These classes work best for people who can commit to a schedule for a short period of time and are looking for success. Our Fast Track classes are scheduled to begin throughout the year and are designed for students to complete one or multiple GED® areas.
