The Adult Education Program
General Education Development (GED®) Preparation
Earning a high school diploma is the first step towards getting a better job and furthering your education.
Our GED® Preparation classes are small and offer a review of writing, social studies, science, reading and math so that you can pass the GED® test and earn a Maryland High School Diploma.
To enroll in a GED® Preparation class, you must be at least 16 years old, officially withdrawn from high school, and attend an orientation session, where you will be given a placement test. Attendance at orientation is required.
