BC Community Education currently registering for GED/HSE, ESL classes

Thu Aug 10, 2017

Brazosport College’s Community Education program is currently registering for its GED/High School Equivalency (HSE), English as a Second Language (ESL) and Citizenship classes.

HSE classes were formerly the GED classes. The state has recently approved other high school equivalency tests besides the GED. Students can currently chose between the GED and HiSET tests.

The HSE, ESL and Citizenship classes are free and are offered at three different locations around Brazoria County.

HSE and ESL Classes are being offered at the BC Main Campus, the new Freeport location at 305 E. Park Ave and the Angleton Marshall Center at 300 Parrish St. in Angleton. The fall 2017 Citizenship class is on Monday and Wednesday evenings at the Brazosport College Main Campus.

“We have different locations in order to provide more options for our community,” said Grant Project Manager Kay Brooks. “We want to make it as easy as possible for anyone wanting to take our classes.”

Taking HSE and ESL classes through Brazosport College is simple. Not only are the courses now offered at locations throughout southern Brazoria County, they also remain free of charge. The college’s Citizenship Class are also free.

Registration is ongoing and classes begin Aug. 21. One can register in person at the Community Education Center, Room B-100 on the Brazosport College main campus.

There are no late registrations for the HSE classes and attendance at the first two class meetings is required. If under 19 years of age, a parent or guardian is required to register for HSE classes. HSE classes do require a textbook and calculator, which are approximately $50.

ESL classes are open to anyone 19 years of age or older, and many of the instructors speak multiple languages. The ESL courses have six levels of progression, beginning with no experience in the English language. Attendance at orientation sessions for ESL/Citizenship is mandatory.

Addresses for the class locations are:

— Brazosport College Main Campus: 500 College Dr., Room B-100

— Angleton Marshall Center: 300 Parrish St.

— Freeport Center: 305 E. Park Ave.
