The General Educational Development tests (GED Test) can give you the opportunity to earn a high school equivalency diploma… a credential recognized as a key to employment opportunities, advancement, further education, and financial rewards.
The intent of the GED program is to serve the serious needs of those students who have withdrawn from a regular high school program (either public or homeschool). In no way does the GED program intend to disrupt or encourage disruption within the regular high school program.
