GED® Preparation & Testing

Currently, the only Virginia board-approved High School Equivalency (HSE) examination in Virginia is the General Educational Development (GED) test, which was developed to enable persons who have not graduated from high school to demonstrate the attainment of abilities normally associated with completion of a high school program of study. FCACE offers preparation classes and is an official GED® testing center.
