Pathways to a High School Diploma

The GED is the high school equivalency test approved by the United States Department of Education and the NJ State Board of Education. The GED is aligned to federal Career and College Readiness Standards and designed to measure skills and concepts associated with four years of regular high school instruction. The test is developed by adult and secondary educators and subject matter specialists. Each of the GED subject tests correspond to the general framework of most high school curricula: writing skills, social studies, science, interpreting literature and the arts, and mathematics.

As of December 22, 2016, GED Testing Service, LLC, Washington DC was determined to be a qualified vendor as a test provider for the New Jersey Department of Education’s (NJDOE’s) List of Approved High School Equivalency Assessments, and their Assessment Tests are approved for use in NJDOE’s approved Test Centers.
