Career & Academic Education – GED Preparation
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.
