Need to upgrade your academic marks or obtain a credit to get into your program of choice?


GED Program – The GED Program gives adults who have not graduated from high school the opportunity to earn a high school equivalency certificate…FOR FREE!

Anyone wanting to take the GED exam, or attend classes, must complete a mandatory practice test. The Official Practice Test (OPT) is used to determine readiness for the official GED exam; it also helps us create an educational plan that best suits your needs.

The GED exam and practice test consists of five subject areas: math, reading, writing, science and social studies. The Official Practice Test takes approximately four hours to complete, however, we can break it into smaller sections to better fit your schedule. If you score 500 or above in any of the subjects, you are qualified to take the official GED test for that subject(s), bypassing classes!

If you have any questions about the GED program or would like to schedule a practice test, please call Sharon at 902-566-9628, toll free 1-800-446-5265, or email scampbell@hollandcollege.com.
