Millions of adults have completed their high school diploma in General Equivalency Diploma programs, known as the GED, to increase their employment potential or to enroll in a higher education program.
The GED Test is an exam to determine whether an individual has attained standard high school level academic skills. This exam is designed for people who have not obtained their high school diploma. Individuals who pass the exam are awarded a GED Certificate.
The GED test can only be taken at official test centers across the country. Unfortunately, you cannot get your GED certification through an online process. The test is a seven hour exam, administered over two days, and broken down into five separate smaller tests based on subject area: math, social studies, science, language arts reading and language arts writing. A student must pass each of the five tests.
The Syracuse City School District encourages students to enroll in a preparation course on a daily basis at one of our classroom sites with our certified teachers to assist you or through distance learning in your home. Syracuse City School District GED preparation programs are FREE of charge. Source: SCSD
