High School Equivalency (GED®)

This course helps students prepare for the General Educational Development (GED®) Testing Program, which may lead to a CT state high school diploma. It reviews the fundamentals of mathematics, English, social studies, and science. Persons 17 years of age or older who are not attending regular school are eligible for this program.

About the GED® Test

The GED® Computer Based Test Series is designed to offer students an alternative route to a high school diploma. The four test series consists of Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Mathematics. Students take these exams from the State of Connecticut.

To register for the GED® Computer Based Test Series, students must start the process at ged.com by setting up a free student account. Students who wish to attend classes to prepare for the exam will have the opportunity to set up their ged.com account during class time.
