Desoto County Literacy is now offering a GED Express Class. Students attend class Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Students study one area of the GED each week. Every Friday the student takes the one subject area that was covered in class. The class is five weeks. There is a scholarship available for students who enroll in the GED express class.
