Help yourself to a brighter future…

The Hilton Head Island GED Camp helps those without a high school diploma get a GED (General Education Diploma), a vital step toward better jobs and a brighter future.

To date, since the beginning of the Hilton Head GED Camp program two years ago, 40 of the 47 students who have taken the GED test have passed!

Hilton Head GED Camp is a day and/or evening program that provides three weeks of intensive preparation before taking the GED test given by the state of South Carolina.

To help students focus on their studies and remove obstacles to success, the program also provides snacks, emergency transportation and childcare (if needed).

Volunteers with experience in teaching writing, reading, math, social studies and science on a high school or college level teach the classes along with other qualified people.
