GED®

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®

  • Science
  • US History/Washington State History
  • Language Arts 
  • Career Pathways
  • Basic Math
  • Pre-Algebra
  • Algebra/Geometry

Daytime and evening 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?

You can on our main campus through the Student Assessment Services office. Information about the GED®, how to register for the test, and more can be found on the Student Assessment Services GED®Testing page
