No matter how long it’s been since you were in school, the GED Academy online study program makes learning fast and simple. Worried about making the commitment? You can pass by studying just one hour a week.
- Why the GED Academy™?
- It’s simple. With the GED Academy™ you can get your GED® certificate faster and easier than you ever thought possible. Going back to get your high school diploma doesn’t have to be a long process.
- Most of our students can be ready for the GED test in just four to five weeks by studying online every day, or three to four months by studying online one hour per week. We help you reach your fastest learning speed with personalized learning. Instead of the one-size-fits-all classroom, we build a customized learning plan that fits your needs.
ACT career readiness curriculum
- The National Career Readiness Certificate™ (NCRC®) is based on an individual’s performance on three WorkKeys® skills assessments: Applied Mathematics, Locating Information, and Reading for Information. Scores on these assessments determine the certificate level—bronze, silver, gold, or platinum—an individual can earn.
- These assessments measure a range of essential work skills, including the ability to:
- Perform basic mathematic operations relevant to the workplace
- Read and understand documents commonly found in the workplace
- Find information presented in common workplace graphics
- Set up and solve complex work-related math problems
- Determine the relevance of written information to work-related tasks
- Apply information derived from graphics to work-related problems
- The NCRC gives individuals proof that they possess the skills employers deem essential to workplace success. This improves career outcomes for everyone from people just entering the workforce to longtime employees—and it enhances employers’ hiring, training, and promotion decisions.
