Taking your GED

The GED Test measures your "General Educational Development". This test covers four separate subjects, including reasoning through language arts, science, social studies, and mathematical reasoning. It is a measurement of your problem solving and critical thinking skills. When you pass all four tests, you receive a credential certifying that your educational understanding is the same or better than a high school graduate.

Cost of the GED Test: $120

The total cost to take the "Full Battery" of tests, meaning all five subjects is $120 ($30 per test). Retests are $30 per subject. Scholarships are available for students who participate in our classes.
