GED Preparation

General Educational Development, or "GED," is a certificate to prove that the test-taker has high-school level academic skills. The GED certificate includes four online exams reflecting the national Common Core State Standards. The four test subjects are:

  • Reasoning through Language Arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

To help you get your GED certificate Shoreline offers Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes.

In order to take the classes you must:

  • Attend an ABE/GED/HS21+  orientation session
  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Not be enrolled in a high school
  • If you are an ESL student, pass ESL level 6 or higher
