High School Equivalency and Basic Skills

The Basic Skills program at Mitchell Community College helps people finish high school through Adult High School or prepare for GED or HiSET Testing to earn a high school equivalency credential. Build basic skills in reading, writing and math and hone life skills. Learn to speak, read and write English.

Classes are offered in Statesville, Mooresville and community locations across Iredell County. Flexible schedules with day and evening hours help students find a way to fit Basic Skills classes into their busy lives. Basic Skills classes are free to students.

To help students move into jobs, Mitchell offers programs that combine Basic Skills and occupational education. In most cases, Basic Skills students can have tuition or registration fees waived for continuing education occupational classes while preparing for the high school credential test.
