Real Learning. Less Recidivism. Low Cost.
CD-ROM versions of our high school equivalency test preparation software reduces correctional education costs in three ways.
1. Speed Inmate Learning.
Correctional education students learn faster because their instruction is targeted to exactly what they need when they need it. Our learning technology creates a personalized learning plan that continually adapts to what the corrections student needs at every step of the way.
2. Reduce Instructor Cost.
The completely stand-alone, self-paced corrections instructional program does the work of many corrections teachers, but allows students to move at their own speed and learning style. Built-in feedback loops give the correctional students just-in-time responses to their efforts, enabling them to adjust and adapt as needed to maximize their learning progress.
3. Give More Flexibility.
Inmates can start, stop, and continue the instruction at a later date if needed, accommodating the often transitory requirements of inmate populations. The program is always saving student learning progress so that both instructors and students can easily access performance at any time.

eLearning Adapted to Correctional Education
High Interest, High Motivation
Inmates often take classes because they have to, not because they want to. The challenge for correctional educational programs is to get inmates motivated and interested in learning. We have solved this by creating a new generation of learning technology built on high interest and motivation. Our teaching in-prison program takes place in a virtual classroom of real students who share many of the same issues as your learners. All of the learning content is presented in multiple learning styles so that every learner develops a deep and thorough understanding of basic concepts and skills. Find out what we teach.
Everyone Treated with Respect
In the often segregated and incendiary environment of adult correctional education, it’s critical that everyone be heard and respected, and that every inmate student receive the personal attention they need to maximize their success. A built-in assessment creates a customized learning plan for every single student. Each learner is treated individually so that they quickly develop the skills they need to obtain their High School Equivalency diploma and to reenter the job market.
The GED Academy, TASC Prep Academy, and HiSET Academy for corrections educational programs address various learning styles, works with the wide range of inmate skills, and respects the cultural diversity of learners. The instruction is engaging, motivating, and sustains interest of learners at all grade levels.

Fast Track for Short-Stay Inmates
The inmates education population is often transitory and requires flexible instruction that not only accelerates learning, but gives administrators the ability to adjust quickly. Because it provides stand-alone, self-paced learning, GED Academy, TASC Prep Academy, and HiSET Academy offer the flexibility for students to adjust the pace of learning. The program is effective for federal prison education, state correctional education, and inmates in county jails. Students are often able to complete their entire High School Equivalency test preparation instruction in two months or less because the program identifies exactly what the inmate student needs.
No Internet, No Problem
The complete instructional program is available on CD-ROM and can be easily installed on stand-alone computers or across a Local Area Network in a correctional facility. Technical requirements are minimal and our tech support reps can help you with the installation if needed.
