General Educational Development (GED) is a free program of instruction in writing, social studies, science, literature and the arts, and mathematics. It is designed to prepare adult students to pass the GED tests which lead to a high school equivalency certificate. The certificate is awarded by the North Carolina Community College System. 

To prepare for the GED, you can enroll in one of our many classes or prepare online. It can take as little as four weeks or as long as a student needs to prepare for the tests.  There is a one time testing fee of $35.00 to take the GED tests. An official picture/signature ID is also required for testing. Learn more about the GED Program.
