GED® Preparation classes are for adults who are 16 years old or older, who are not enrolled in high school, and who wish to improve their ability to pass the GED test. To give adults the flexibility to prepare for this high-school equivalency exam, students may choose from two instructional methods: online or classroom. Our counselors will help you decide which option is best for you!
