Camden Campus Community Education
Adult Basic Skills Classes (formerly GED)
Camden County College’s Adult Basic Skills High School Completion Test Preparation Program (formerly called GED) has been proudly serving New Jersey residents since 2008. We offer a unique academic program in a family atmosphere with qualified and caring instructors.
Our comprehensive, 12 month program is customized to meet the needs of each student. After studying reading, writing, science, social studies and math, the students will take practice tests. If they do well, they can take the actual test. When the students pass all 5 parts of the new HiSet High School Completion Test, they earn a New Jersey State endorsed High School Diploma!
With their High School diplomas, the students can participate in the Annual Graduation Ceremony, wear a cap and gown, and have their friends and relatives share in their special day.

Each adult student who enrolls will be pre-tested in reading and mathematics with the TABE test. After taking the TABE test the Program’s instructors will have an individual conference with each student and review the results of the tests. From the TABE results the students will be grouped according to their abilities within the mathematics, reading, and writing subject areas. In addition, all students will receive weekly instruction in science and social studies.
