The Spanish American Committee GED RISE Program

The GED Rise program is the only Spanish language Adult GED program in the state of Ohio.  The program provides Spanish speaking adult students with limited English the tools to complete their high school education and receive their General Education Diploma.  These accomplishments allow graduates to pursue education, training or employment opportunities that otherwise would not have been possible.

  • GED Rise is designed to help students advance in math, science, reading, and social studies so they are prepared for the State of Ohio General Education Diploma examinations.
  • Using the Spanish language in the classroom and bi-lingual instructors provides the unique integration of education and cultural sensitivity to clients' needs and has been integral to the program's success.
  • There is no set timeline for these adult students to graduate. Students progress at their own pace, while SAC staff encourages them to continue and succeed. GED Rise conforms to each student's grade-level, comprehension and aptitude.  Each student is guided through their current ability level up to graduation.   Students are tested on subjects monthly and in state exam readiness quarterly. 
  • Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the SAC offices
  • Tutoring, homework and learning activities are done outside of the classroom. 

 Enrollment Process
