Things you should know about the GED program
What is GED?
GED stands for General Educational Development and it is actually the process of earning the equivalent of a high school diploma in the United States and it will allow you to register for college.
Is the GED program recomended for me?
The GED program is recommended for young adults over 18 years that drop out of High School prior to completion and have some knowledge of the material to be covered. The GED program also could help adults that even though they received some primary education, can read and write and learned basic Math in their native language, and have never graduated from High School. The opportunity to participate in the GED program is given if the student demonstrates that they are able to understand the subjects and the ability to keep up and make progress in class.
There is any difference between the GED in Spanish and English?
The GED program and tests are offered in English, Spanish, and they are all equally valid. The actual GED diploma is published in English and there is no reference made to the language you used in your GED studies and tests.
How can I register to the GED program?
We recommend that you use our website (centrohispanomarista.org) to receive registration form and information by following the student’s registration instructions. Regardless of whether you register on our website, you are required to attend the official registration date.

When are the GED clases?

What is the cost for the GED classes?
We offer the GED program free. We only charge you for the price of the books which is at our cost. However, as of June 2013, the official GED Testing Centers of Georgia, charges you $32 per test. There are 5 tests which could cost you a total of $160. However, these charges will increase in 2014.
Where are the classes located?
All our classes are conducted at the Marist High School Campus located on 3790 Ashford Dunwoody Road.
How log it will take me to be ready for taking the GED tests?
The time needed to complete the GED varies for everyone. However, most people can complete the GED program in one to two years. But it will depend on how much time you spend studying the five subjects and your ability to understand and apply the material covered in class. The more time you have to study, the faster it will go.
What score do I need to pass de GED?
You will have ample opportunity to pass the GED. If you do not score enough points to pass the GED Tests, either on an individual subject with 410 or in total with 2250, then you must retake the tests. You are required to retake those specific subjects on which you did not score at least 410 points. Only the highest scores achieved from different test sessions will be kept and included in your total score. Although you do not have to retake the sections on which you scores 410 points or greater, it may be wise that you retake several subtests in order to increase the total score.
