GED Program

General Educational Development (GED) is the first step you can take to prepare yourself for higher education, technical training, attaining your high school diploma, or achieving a personal goal. We are an official testing center in the State of RI. We can also prepare you for pre-testing, administer final testing, and offer classes.

How do I get started?

  1. First, you will fill out an application and pay an assessment fee of $25.
  2. Next, you will then be given a screening test to determine your overall skill level in the areas of reading and math.
  3. Based on those scores, you will be advised of your educational plan developed within four different subjects: Reasoning Through Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
  4. Once it is determined that you are ready to test, we will administer the GED Ready, the official practice test in that subject.

Completing your GED will help you prepare for future opportunities.
