General Educational Development (GED) Preparation


The GED certificate is equivalent to a high school diploma. It will help you enter further education, meet eligibility requirements for financial aid, meet requirements for a job or promotion, or achieve personal goals.

To obtain the certificate, you must pass four tests:

  1. Math 
  2. Language Arts 
  3. Science 
  4. Social Studies

The GED can also be a gateway to a high school diploma.

We have on-campus classes:

  • Morning: 8:00 - 11:00 a.m.  
  • Afternoon: 11:30 - 2:30  p.m.
  • Evening: 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

We have classes at off-campus locations and online classes.
