GED® Educators in New York
The one and only high school equivalency diploma in the state of New York.
The GED® is back in NY and is now the only test for earning a high school equivalency diploma. We’re here to help you introduce and transition your students to the GED test program.
The GED exam is made up of four subjects, divided into separate tests. Students don’t have to take all four tests at once — they can go at their own pace for prep and space out taking the tests to best fit their schedule. This overview breaks down the GED test, by subject area.
