Congratulations to Crestview Elementary for winning the trophy for Most Funds Raised, to LeTort Elementary for winning the trophies for Most Participation and Most Creative School Campaign, and to Mooreland Elementary for winning the trophy for Most Funds Raised Per Capita.

Changes to the GED test!

Graphic for website

GED Testing Services has announced that the passing score for all four GED® tests has moved from 150 to 145. This change is effective immediately although it will not be reflected in candidates’ MyGED® score reports until March 1, 2016 when the system will be fully updated. Test-takers should know however, that if they score 145 or higher, they have passed the test.


This change is also retroactive–any candidate who took a GED® test in the past and earned a 145 or higher has now passed the test. Candidate accounts at will be updated on March 1, 2016 to reflect this change in status.


In addition, beginning March 1, 2016, the Social Studies exam will no longer include an extended response and the time will decrease from 90 to 75 minutes.


Now is a great time to get to work on finishing your GED®! Stop in or give us a call and let us help you reach your goal!
