GED classes at Harvest Time International

Dr. Terri Daniels, dean of the School of Academic Foundations, congratulates a graduate of the school's Adult Education programs.

Seminole State College of Florida is helping adults in Seminole County, including those who are financially distressed, to complete their high school education by offering free Adult Basic Education and GED classes at Harvest Time International (HTI) in Sanford beginning March 12.

The classes, offered by the College’s School of Academic Foundations, are available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Harvest Time, a nonprofit agency that provides emergency food assistance, clothing and basic household items as well as medical and dental care to qualified individuals and families.

The school plans to offer the classes at HTI on other days and evenings eventually, says Frank Bonjione, associate dean, Center for Secondary Studies for Adults. “These classes will be a permanent addition at Harvest Time,” he says.

The GED classes at HTI will be offered free of charge through tuition waivers for Spring Term B, which runs March 11-April 30. The tuition waivers are offered only this term and only at this GED site, Bonjione says. Students taking GED classes at any of the school’s five other Seminole County centers will pay the state-mandated $30 in-state fee per term, regardless of how many classes they take.

Seminole State began partnering with HTI in 2012 to assist students, faculty and staff who are experiencing financial difficulties.

Also, as part of the collaboration, Seminole State students and employees volunteer at the agency on targeted projects.

Seminole State’s School of Academic Foundations offers:

  • Year-round GED preparatory classes to adult students.
  • An Adult High School program that provides students a personalized education, including tutoring, counseling and dual enrollment opportunities.
  • English Language Studies programs that help students reach personal, educational and professional goals and that are scheduled to accommodate busy work and home lives.

For more information on these programs at Seminole State College, please visit the Adult Education website, or call 407.708.2153.
