Over 20 Million Adults

That’s how many have successfully passed the high school equivalency test. So why wait?

LET’S GET STARTED

"I was born very poor to a single parent house hold in the black ghetto section of Boston, Massachusetts, and was raised on welfare. It was very difficult growing up under these conditions and I even took to a brief life of crime... it lead me to my first positive male role model in the form of a corrections officer. On his positive influence, I took and passed the GED exam and was on my way to a four-year college by the age of 20. I did indeed graduate from college and attained a Master’s degree by the year 2000 in Political Science."

- Ramone, Massachuetts
