Tutoring / GED

COPE, Inc. offers a variety of educational programs ranging from GED and Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes to individual tutoring. Our GED and tutoring programs are taught by State Certified Teachers who have extensive experience in the education field.

The GED program at COPE, Inc. partners very closely with the behavioral health component and works as a team to best serve our clients. Our classroom serves approximately 6-8 students at a time but has a maximum limit of 12 students. Our GED teacher works on an individual basis with all students to best ensure they are reaching their potential in the most efficient time frame. Small and large group instruction is also provided.

Over the years COPE, Inc.'s GED and tutoring programs have evolved, diversified, and improved. The population currently served through our GED program is TANF recipients. Our tutoring programs are open to the general population on a sliding scale. We have an on-going enrollment process but do suggest that students call before coming to enroll. However, enrollment is not final until the student actually attends class. COPE's GED program does serve the requirements of 30 hours per week for TANF recipients.

COPE, Inc. has a variety of success stories from students who have attended our program. We at COPE feel a measure of our accomplishments are reflected by the success of our students. A few brief stories are as follows:

"I completed my GED preparatory studies in only 6 weeks. I have now passed my GED test and been accepted into nursing classes."

-Former COPE, Inc. GED Student

"When I came to COPE, Inc. I had just moved to the Oklahoma City area and felt that I had no one. I was staying in a shelter with my children and turned to assistance through DHS. I was referred to COPE by my worker and began attending. It was shortly after I had gotten there that I began to feel at home and began to develop a support system. Within only a few months I had gained assistance and the self-esteem needed to start getting back on my feet. I then passed my GED and was able to secure a good job."
