This article shows all GED® prep class sites and testing facilities in the Belle Glade area.
Florida is using the GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.
The General Education Development (GED) program is developed for individuals who don’t hold a high school diploma.
This way, they can earn a credential that is all over North America accepted in the same way as a common high school diploma.
The GED comes with four separate subtests (modules) in these academic subject areas: Social Studies, Science, Literacy, and Math.
The GED test is administered exclusively on a computer. Paper-based testing is not possible anymore.
You are given two years to complete these four modules.

Who is the GED exam for?
The new computer formatted GED test is for persons who never received a high school diploma, and the GED test offers them another chance to acquire a similar degree. The certificate that will be awarded after successful completion of the Florida GED exam is nationwide acknowledged and accepted as an equivalency to a common high school diploma by employers, government organizations, recruiters, and colleges.
The GED exam is completely ‘digitalized’ but online testing is not an option. You need to sit for the tests face-to-face at one of Florida’s official testing sites. No longer do you have to take the entire GED battery in one session of a few days. Test scores count for two years from your initial registration.

There are websites that want to make you believe that you can earn your GED diploma online via their sites, but mind you, this is fraud. You cannot do any GED testing online, you must come to a state-designated testing site to do it all in person! Please don’t get ripped off by these con artists who just want to steal your dollars. Check page GED testing requirements in Florida to see if you qualify for the program.
