LET’S GET STARTED

“I faced many situations in my life where a diploma was necessary: to get a better job or to start college. For me to see that most of the stories about the GED test are from people that have overcome incredible situations, such as young pregnancy or any type of situation that would cause them to drop out school… Well, I always thought to myself, 'What was my excuse?' If I can pass the GED test, I’m sure you can too. Right now I’m focused on entering college and studying clinical psychology. There’s just such a great feeling of accomplishment that flows in me. I now know I can do anything!”
