GED Prep Registration

  • Passing the GED tests is a way to earn a secondary school credential without
    graduating from a traditional high school. The GED is a seven-and-a-half hour
    exam with four separate test sections that measure knowledge and skills that are
    expected of high school graduates. South Carolina does not require that GED
    candidates take a prep course before sitting down to take the tests. However,
    enrolling in a preparatory course can help familiarize you with what is on the test,
    the types of questions you will be asked, and the computer format being used for
    the GED. Additionally, a prep course might help increase your scores. In our GED Prep
    classes we identify what skills you already have, what skills you need to work on,
    and which test taking skills you might need to develop in order to alleviate anxieties you may have.

    At this time, we offer 2 options for GED Prep. 

    Face to Face Instruction: Morning Classes
    Monday through Thursday AM 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.

    Face to Face Instruction: Evening Classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M. Onine lessons will be provided through Essential Education. Five hours outside of the virtual class time is expected.

    Registration by appointment only. Call (803) 821-2950 to schedule your appointment.
