As a reminder for potential GED students, the new GED 2014 Test is available. In Arkansas, the test must be taken online at an approved Adult Ed Center or Testing Site, and the cost is only $16 through December. Conway Adult Education classes and services offer students everything they need to jump start or continue their education. They can achieve what they need absolutely free or very low cost.
CAEC staff gives students the personal attention they need to succeed and the motivation to stay focused on their educational or employment goals.
