Why Choose WWCC for GED Preparation?

For most people, high school is the gateway to college, better jobs and higher pay. But not everyone has access to a high school diploma. If you missed your shot at finishing high school, the General Education Development (GED) test can provide a pathway to your goals. Our GED Preparation courses will teach you what you need to know to earn your GED certificate. We offer courses in both English and Spanish tailored to your skill level. So you can start your journey to a better future.

Advance Your Career

Why a GED Matters

If you didn’t finish high school, it’s worth getting your GED now. Workers with a diploma or GED make on average 25% more than those without one. And your earning potential only grows with each level of school you complete. Having a diploma can pave the way for you to earn a college certificate or degree — and open up all kinds of job opportunities.

Courses in GED Preparation

In these courses, you’ll cover the four core sections of the GED test: language arts, math, social studies and science. Through lectures, group work, one-on-one instruction, online exercises and self-paced work, you’ll get ready to pass the GED with flying colors.
