Education

Our Education program is located on the second floor of the Spot and provides services such as GED prep classes, assistance in getting back into or re-engaging in high school, and college prep assistance.

GED Classes (ages 17 through 24)

We do all of the preparation for the GED tests at our facility, including computer and packet work, workshops, and practice tests. We help youth prepare for each of the GED subject tests: Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies. When they are ready to test, we send them to an official testing center and cover the cost of the exams. We have a graduation ceremony every year that we invite our graduates and their support systems to attend!

Enroll in High School (ages 15 through 20)

In the United States, youth have until they are 21 to earn their high school diploma. We work with local organizations to help youth connect with and engage in different high schools and offer the use of the classroom for youth in high school to use as a safe place to study.

Enroll in College/Trade School (ages 17 through 24)

Urban Peak’s Education program is more than just GED preparation; our Education team works with youth to explore and prepare for post-secondary options. During our open classroom hours, staff assist youth in searching for and applying to school and navigating the financial aid process. Youth are also welcome to utilize our classroom as a place to study and do homework and to get help proofreading papers, working on math homework, or whatever else they might need to succeed in school.
