Over 20 Million Adults

That’s how many have successfully passed the GED® Test. So why wait?

LET’S GET STARTED

"Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t, because you can. I dream of getting my GED and feeling so proud of myself. Being able to fill out an application and not having to think, 'Oh, I don’t have a high school diploma. What should I put?' I am really working on doing it this time. It’s time. It’s been long enough."

- Rhonda
