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. And 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 teach you test taking skills to alleviate anxieties you may have.

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

    Face to Face Instruction
    Monday through Thursday AM 9 am – 12 pm.

    Virtual Classes will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings through ZOOM from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm.
    Teachers will have ZOOM Office hours from 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm for extra help.
    Other virtual lessons will be provided through Essential Education. 5 hours outside of the virtual class time is expected.
