Personalized Learning Means Success.


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. It’s what we’d do if we had the luxury of teaching one student at a time.

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 instruction they need, then everyone can be successful. We don’t leave students alone, on their own, to figure out what they need. With the GED® Academy, your students are a part of a helping-hand support system that makes sure they get what they need to get the skills and knowledge for a GED diploma and a successful transition to post-secondary education.
