Mission GED, Reading Assistance, and Internships

Further Your Education for a Better Life

A good education is important

Learning more is one of the best ways to improve your life. People with higher levels of education are more likely to make more money, be healthy, and live longer lives.

First ChoiceSM by Select Health of South Carolina knows the value of education. That’s why we’re proud to offer special programs, resources, and support to help First Choice members reach their learning goals. If you want to improve or continue your education, we can help.

Mission GED (general educational development)

Getting a GED can change your life.

A GED can help you find a better job, earn a raise, get a college degree, or join the military.
