GED® Academy: Forging the Road Ahead
Online GED School
Getting a GED diploma is no small thing.
For people who left school early, getting a high school diploma can seem like a huge hurdle to jump over. Not only is the idea of “going back to school” daunting, but there are the problems of day care, transportation, scheduling around classes, and tuition. Only about 6% of people who need a GED® diploma are able to attend adult education classes. Clearly, the adult education system is failing the people who need it most.
The GED Academy was invented to solve this problem.
We started with the assertion that everyone can learn the basic skills and knowledge they need to get a GED test credential and go on to good paying jobs and higher education. Everyone. But to fulfill this potential meant that we had to find a better way to educate people, a way of learning that made everyone successful no matter when they left school or what their background is.
The GED Academy’s Approach to Education
Everyone is different...
So why teach everyone the same? The idea of putting twenty or thirty learners in a single room and expecting them to learn at the same speed and in the same way simply doesn’t work.
The only advantage of teaching this way is cost. It’s cheaper to hire one teacher for a classroom of students than to hire a personal teacher for every student. It’s the only possible way for schools to afford teaching. The problem is, school becomes an assembly line, and the student gets shortchanged.
How to give everyone a personal teacher?
In the past, the problem had no answer. Now, the answer is simple. It just hasn’t been recognized by an educational system that’s stuck in the old way of teaching. Educational software has been around for decades. Some of it is good, but most of it just tries to mimic the teaching model of the classroom, with lectures and textbooks that treat all students the same.
The real solution is smart educational software. That’s what we have created, an amazing learning program that makes everyone successful by teaching each student personally.
GED Academy creates personalized learning.
A personal learning or study plan is created when a student starts our program. A quick assessment identifies the gaps in the learner’s knowledge and skills. Then the program takes over and serves up the exact lessons the student needs to maximize their learning. The idea is simple when you think of it.
Everyone is successful at learning.
This is a big claim to make. In the typical classroom setting, it would be impossible for every student to be successful. But when every learner gets the exact teaching they need, then everyone can be successful. We don’t leave students alone, on their own, to figure out what they need. At GED Academy, you’re part of a helping-hand support system that makes sure you get what you need to get your GED diploma, and even go on to a better job or college.
We make dreams come true.
We started out thinking about ourselves as an innovative education company, but really what we do is make dreams come true. And this is no small thing.
