GED® Program Description

The General Education Development or GED® is a national alternative educational program leading to a certificate of achievement from the State of Virginia which is equivalent to a regular high school diploma.

Students enrolled in this program must be able to pass a comprehensive 7.5 hour exam targeting specific curriculum areas in order to complete their GED®. Unlike traditional high school programs, there is no grading system used to build credit toward the certificate.

The student's success in obtaining the GED® is based solely on the student’s ability to pass the exam. Therefore, the major focus of the program is to prepare students by building their competencies in writing, math, science, social studies, and literature to successfully pass the GED® test.

Students who apply to the program will be pre-tested using a reading assessment and a computer- based diagnostic program to assess their educational levels and deficiencies.  Students must first score a minimum of a ninth-grade reading level on a reading assessment in order to take the pre-test. Students who meet the minimum reading level requirements will then create a MYGED® account and complete the official state practice test, GED Ready®.  Students who score a minimum of 125 on each section of the GED Ready® will qualify for the program.

After the pre-test, students will begin the state-of-the-art, computer-assisted instruction specifically designed for GED® education. Through MYGED®, students will be given an individualized score report that will highlight objectives in each subject area in which students will require instruction.  The program will then track the students’ progress through all of their sessions.

Students will also participate in a teacher led classroom instruction in math, writing, science, social studies, critical reading, and vocational and career planning.
To enable the student's ultimate success in this program, teachers will monitor each student's progress as the student proceeds through the program, provide one-to-one assistance or tutoring with students as needed, and review each student's progress monthly.
