Takoda GED is Open to All Adult Learners

Did you know that Takoda GED offers educational opportunities for adults who already have a high school diploma or GED?

Here are some ways that we could help you…yes, YOU!

Prepare for postsecondary training.

Takoda Institute (as well as many other postsecondary programs) requires all students to take the TABE test in reading and math. Some programs have minimum required scores for enrollment. We can help you review or relearn skills so you can raise your scores and enroll in the program of your choice.

Study for the Accuplacer.

All Minnesota State colleges and universities administer the Accuplacer placement test to incoming students. Higher scores on the Accuplacer can help you save time and money by allowing you to “test out” of lower-level reading, writing, or math courses. Our teachers and tutors will work with you to develop a stronger foundation in literacy and math concepts so you can feel truly ready to begin college.

Explore careers and get ready for employment.

Takoda GED offers a no-cost employment readiness workshop every Monday. Workshop topics include setting goals, getting organized, identifying your transferable skills, crafting resumes and cover letters, handling stress, and managing money. We have a full-time academic and career Navigator on staff to help you find your path to professional success. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ll help you learn about careers that interest you.

Get computer-savvy.

Forgot your email password? Can’t type with more than two fingers? Don’t know the difference between a Word doc and a spreadsheet? You are not alone! We will meet you where you are and help you gain confidence performing everyday tasks with computers. We also offer the opportunity to earn Northstar Digital Literacy certificates in areas such as Windows, Microsoft Word and Excel, Social Media, and Information Literacy.

Help your kids with their homework.

Maybe “new math” gives you a headache, reading aloud to your kids is a struggle, or you’re stumped by their science or social studies questions. All three Takoda GED teachers are licensed K-12 educators who are happy to help with homework issues. As an extra bonus, we can provide coupons for discounted admission to the Science Museum of Minnesota!

Become more involved with your community.

We regularly read about and discuss current events that affect you and your community. Learn how you can make a difference on issues that matter to you.
