Have you been thinking about going back to school and earning your GED®? Join Rio Salado at AZ GED® Day on Monday, May 1 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

GED® seekers will have a chance to take their first steps toward enrolling in Rio’s GED® test preparation classes and be connected to additional GED® resources. This initiative can help individuals who lack a high school diploma and set them on a pathway of opportunity and life-long success.

Rio Salado College serves as the principal provider of GED® test preparation programs for the Maricopa Community Colleges and the largest provider of adult basic education in the state of Arizona.

Rio will host registration centers at select participating Starbucks locations in Maricopa County. To learn more about Rio Salado’s GED® test prep programs visit or call (480) 517-8110.
