“I received my GED last year and I am now attending College Of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas. I hope to transfer to University Of Nevada and finish a four year program with them. I just want to thank the GED Academy. I am so thankful that I am back on the road to success and all the credit goes to the GED Academy!”
