Take the first step today.
Goodwill offers free GED classes for students who want to improve their education and get their GED or HiSET credential. Whether you want to give your family a better future or you want to achieve a personal goal, obtaining your GED opens the door to better career options. Best of all, Goodwill offers support along the way so that going back to school doesn’t have to be scary. All classes incorporate reading comprehension and math computation, and focus on the four subject areas covered on the GED test: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
Currently, all classes are being held online. Our staff can help determine which level class is best for you and answer questions about technical requirements for online classes. We provide the support you need to take the next step! Daytime, evening, and Saturday classes available. Fill out this form if you would like to be contacted.
All in-person classes are currently on hold, but will be reopening in phases over the next few months. Please check back for more information or contact us to be put on a waitlist.
