High School Equivalency - GED®

GED® Preparation Classes

Our GED® Preparation Classes help students prepare for the High School Equivalency Test (GED®). The GED® test is a series of four tests, available for students who have not completed high school and need an equivalent certificate — the High School Equivalency GED® certificate — to demonstrate knowledge and skills.

Our classes are designed to improve basic language arts, reading, writing, math, science and social studies skills, in preparation for taking the series of GED® tests.

If you are age 16-18 years old: A completed High School Release form or a Request for Approval to Test for the GED® form is required, signed by a school official and parent or guardian. This form is available at your local high school or high school district office. You must be at least 16 years old to enroll in a GEDPrep course or take the GED® tests.

Need to take the GED® Test?

You can learn more about the GED® test and register to take the High School Equivalency Test (GED®) through our Assessment Center. Prep classes are recommended, but not required in order to take the GED.
