GED-General Educational Development
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people earn their General Educational Development (GED) certificate. The GED program provides an opportunity to earn your high school credential outside of school. Over the years, the GED test has provided personal, professional and academic satisfaction for millions of adults who were unable to complete their formal high school studies.
