Registration ongoing for GED, ESL Community Education classes

Thu Aug 11, 2016

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

Better yet, the classes are free and are offered at four different locations around Brazoria County.

GED and ESL Classes are being offered at both the BC Main Campus and the new Freeport location at 311 E. Park Road, while GED courses are also being offered at Columbia High School in West Columbia and the Marshall Center in Angleton. The fall 2016 Citizenship class is on Tuesday evening 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 GED 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. 29. 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 GED classes and attendance at the first two class meetings is required. If under 18 years of age, a parent or guardian is required to register for GED classes. GED classes do require a GED textbook and calculator, which are approximately $50.

ESL classes are open to anyone 18 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.

Addresses for the class locations are:

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

    Angleton Marshall Center: 300 Parrish St.

    Freeport Center: 311 E. Park Ave.
