Our GED® class prepares adults without a high school diploma to take the GED® (General Educational Development) tests. The GED® is a group of subject tests that covers the core academic areas of a high school curriculum. It is a nationally recognized high school equivalency credential. We provide lessons in Language Arts (Reading and Writing), Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Instruction is tailored to meet individual student needs. We have helped hundreds of students pass their GED® tests and move on to better jobs and higher education.

GED 2014® is here!
The old 2002 Series GED® test which was usually taken with paper and pencil expired at the end of 2013. If you passed only some of the 2002 series tests, those test scores will be no longer be accepted for credit by the PA Department of Education.
The new 2014 GED® test is administered on computer only. We provide computer practice as part of our GED curriculum to ensure all students are comfortable with the new computer based test format.
The new 2014 GED® test has four parts:
- Reasoning Through Language Arts (RLA) – 150 minutes (including a 10-minute break)
- Mathematical Reasoning – 115 minutes
- Science – 90 minutes
- Social Studies – 70 minutes
Study material for all four of the GED subject tests may be found here.
The passing score has moved from 150 to 145 for all four GED® test subjects! This score change is effective immediately, even though it won’t be reflected in your myGED® score report until the system is updated on March 1, 2016. Just know that if you score 145 or higher, you passed!
- This score change is retroactive. If you took the new GED® test in the past and scored 145 or higher, you have now PASSED that test. Log into GED.com on March 1, 2016 to see your updated record!
