The GED exam reflects the 4 major academic subjects of four years of high school:

  • Reasoning Through Language Arts
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Mathematics

Also, a GED (like any other high school diploma) is the ticket to furthering education, job opportunities, promotion, and general advancement in life.

A GED can help you continue your education, get a better job, increase your income, feel better about yourself, and invest in your future. You can even complete the graduation experience by walking in cap and gown in our GED graduation ceremony, with your friends and your family in attendance!
