Where We Stand and What We Do

GED Testing Service offers the only learner-centric program that is recognized and portable from state to state. The program is based on the expectations and standards for college- and career-readiness and will lead to better outcomes in education.


We’re facing a national crisis. Millions of adults, without high school diplomas, lack the skills and knowledge to succeed in the 21st Century marketplace. This impacts every community in America. But worse, it’s devastating to the adults who want to fulfill the American dream of a better life for themselves and their families.

We need to give these adults and their families a fighting chance. We need to give them the tools, resources and knowledge--through a high school equivalency program--to prepare them for college or a good job with good wages. And in doing so, employers and colleges deserve a credential that signifies something meaningful.

That’s why GED Testing Service has built not just a new test but a new comprehensive program that ensures that their credential signifies that the recipient has the skills and knowledge necessary to take the next critical steps in their lives. We owe these adults nothing less as their futures depend on it. 


GED Testing Service has developed not just a new test but a comprehensive GED® program that, in today’s tech-savvy world, lives up to the expectations of employers, colleges and the GED® test-takers themselves.

The GED® program gives adults a fighting chance to go to college or get a better job.  For 70 years, we’ve made it our mission to help adults succeed.
