GED

What is GED?

GED stands for General Education Diploma, and it is the equivalent of a high school diploma. Employers and about 99% of colleges will accept a GED certificate in place of a high school diploma. 

Enrolled students engage in coursework and take subject tests. The GED test includes four subjects: science, language arts, social studies and math. You can take all four exams at once or one at a time. Westerly Education Center not only hosts GED courses, we offer the tests because we are a Pearson Vue testing site.

The GED providers at Westerly Education Center are Tri-County Community Action Agency and Education Exchange (401-783-0293). Contact either or both to see what works best for you. 

When you have completed the coursework, stay at Westerly Education Center and book your test at our testing center. Choose “schedule your test” then click G to display the GED exam. Choose Westerly Education Center and the dates/times that work for you. So easy!
