WHAT: The Butler Basic Skills Department is designed to provide instruction in the following areas: Basic Skills Education, GED High School Equivalency, English as a Second Language, and Compensatory Education.
WHO: The Basic Skills programs serve adults over the age of 18 who have not completed high school or high school graduates who wish or need to refresh their skills. Students between 16 and 18 years of age may attend with the written permission of the school superintendent or his designee and parent or guardian.
HOW: The Basic Skills programs are designed to meet the needs of individuals requiring basic skills instruction, from new readers to high school graduates and English as a Second Language.

Structured classes are recommended at each level of instruction, starting with basic reading and moving toward the courses required for the GED high school equivalency preparation.

Lab Instruction is also provided. This is an individualized study situation in which prescribed instructional materials and computer-based instruction are utilized. The lab instruction and regular classes use a variety of computer software especially tailored to different levels and needs.

No registration fee is charged for these programs. Classes are offered both on the Sampson Community College campus and at class sites throughout the county.

GED ONLINE is also available for students who have a computer and internet access. Call LaVoice Faison-Stevens at 592-8081 ext. 3519 or email lstevens@sampsoncc.edu for more information.

Sampson Community College also serves as the GED testing center for Sampson County. Pre-tests and instruction, available at no charge through the Basic Skills Department, can help ensure success on the tests. Those obtaining satisfactory scores on the GED test are awarded the High School Diploma Equivalency Certificate. The GED testing fee is $25.00.
