Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania offers many opportunities for people who wish to improve their education. The agency is now enrolling for free adult education classes at convenient locations on bus routes in North Side, Forest Hills, McKeesport, Lawrenceville and Natrona Heights.

Goodwill’s classes help prepare students to take a high school equivalency test (GED® or HiSET) so they can earn their Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma. All classes incorporate reading comprehension, math computation, build and master academic language, and reasoning within the subject areas on the tests: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. 

All students receive various additional Goodwill benefits including:

  • Testing scholarships available to those who qualify,
  • 25% discount at Goodwill stores,
  • Small classes with classmates on a similar level,
  • Access to support services through the Goodwill Welcome Center, including Goodwill Career Services, Digital Skills Training and Financial Education.
  • Graduates are invited to take part in a cap and  gown ceremony, where friends and family can join in the celebration as certificates are presented.
