Aspire is a FREE program!
To get a good job today, you need basic academic and workforce skills. Aspire is a FREE program for anyone 16 and over in the community. Aspire classes are a stepping stone to transition to the next chapter in life. Refresh your basic academic skills in reading, math, or language to help earn your GED or High School Diploma, enter a skills training program, obtain a job, and/or retain your current job. 
Aspire students are required to attend an orientation before beginning classes.  Students ages 16-18 must pre-register for orientation.  Decide which location best fits you, then call 419-238-5411, ext. 2075 to register for orientation. 
The new Medical Prep classes will help students improve basic academic and workforce skills, but will be geared towards students entering the STNA, Medical Assistant, or Practical Nursing Programs.  Assistance will also be provided with improving WorkKeys scores and HESI scores for students wishing to apply for the Practical Nursing Program, Medical Assistant Program or the Adult Diploma Program.
