Get Your GED®

What is the GED®?

  • If you didn’t graduate from high school, the GED® (General Educational Development) tests can help you earn a high school equivalency certificate. Tests are available in English and Spanish.

  • Why is it important? A GED® opens doors — to college, training programs, the military, better jobs and career advancement. It's the first step to building a better future.

  • Most colleges and employers accept the GED®  as being equivalent to a high school diploma. 

Getting Ready to Take the Tests

If you have been out of school for a while, you may want to take some GED® prep classes before you take the GED® tests. We offer classes in math, language arts, reading, social studies and science.

You can take the classes in one of our learning centers or online.
