GED Preparation

Winter classes will begin January 8.

SBLC offers a variety of classes, at various educational levels, times, and days. Depending on your schedule you can choose a day, evening or Saturday class. Classes are offered during 12 week academic sessions. To qualify for these classes, learners must be a Maryland resident, at least 18 years of age and officially withdrawn from high school.

The majority of classes are held on-site at our main facility on 28 E. Ostend St., but we also offer instruction at a variety of partner locations around the city.

Today’s everyday champion is Cecilia Byrd. Achieving her Maryland High School Diploma had been on Cecilia Byrd’s mind since 1992, however, watching her son walk across the stage at Digital Harbor High School followed by her other son returning home with his high school diploma sealed the deal. Ms. Byrd had seen a flyer for South Baltimore Learning Center at her church and decided that it was time for her to be an everyday champion for herself, her family, and her community. In 2013, Ms. Byrd began classes at SBLC.

While Ms. Byrd humbly explains how SBLC staff welcomed her with an open heart making her feel welcomed and appreciated, she glosses over the good cheer she brings with her when she comes in for class and tutoring. Ms. Byrd can often be found encouraging other learners and offering words of wisdom and support when needed.

After SBLC, Ms. Byrd plans to go on to college for a business degree so that she can open her own cleaning company.
