Registration for the Winter quarter GED prep classes is now closed. Spring quarter registration will open on February 5, 2024.
GED Prep classes will be online only and are held between 9:00am – 1:00pm. Online classes are live through Zoom Tuesdays - Thursdays between 9:00 am – 1:00 pm and are recorded so that you can review class lessons at a time that works best for your schedule. Our GED program is preparation for GED testing, but you will schedule your GED tests on your own through http://www.ged.com/. There will also be in-person support sessions. (The instructors will provide the day/time). While zoom classes and in-person support sessions are highly recommended, they are not required.
If you have questions, please call 206-934-5363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our current office hours are Mon/Wed/Thurs: 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Tuesday: 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Friday: 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
GED® classes are for adults, age 16 and older, who want to improve their skills and prepare for the GED® tests.
Before taking classes, students are assessed to determine their needs and appropriate coursework. Students also have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor to determine whether the GED®, High School 21+, or another high school completion option is the best path to success.
What classes are available?
Students take classes that focus on the content of the four GED® tests. All GED® students are also required to take Career Pathways, a class that requires students to identify a career goal and coaches students on the specific steps they need to take toward that goal while they study for the GED®.
- Basic Math
- Career Pathways
- Language Arts
- US History/Washington State History
Daytime classes are offered. Most classes are blended with our High School 21+ program, so students taking GED® coursework always have the option of switching between those programs depending on whichever option better serves their needs.
How does GED® testing work?
Information about the GED®, how to register and pay for the tests, and more can be found on the Student Assessment Services GED® Testing page.
If you only want to take the GED® test, you must register, prepare, take official practice tests and schedule tests at www.ged.com. You will need an email account and be able to pay with a debit, credit, or pre-paid debit card available for purchase at merchants.
