Are you interested in obtaining your GED® but unsure where to start? Look no further!
Although not a testing site, we offer GED prep classes to help you gain more knowledge and confidence. After a placement test, we can determine what areas may need more improvement, and that helps with assuring a higher success rate in passing the GED tests. 

Below are some of the frequently asked questions.

What is the GED®test?


The GED test is made up of 4 subjects that are broken into separate exams. This is great as it means you don't have to take all 4 tests at once and allows you to become more familiar with the setting of the testing site and the test structure itself.

Below are the 4 Subjects that you have to pass to receive your High School Equivalent Diploma:

  1. Reasoning through Language Arts (RLA)
  2. Mathematical Reasoning
  3. Science 
  4. Social Studies
