GED Program


The General Educational Development (GED) program is an alternative for earning a South Carolina High School lcredential. This program is for adults lacking the number of credits necessary to complete the Adult High School Diploma route within a year or have extenuating circumstances beyond their control.

Students who pass each of the five test areas with a minimum score of 410 and a total score of 2250 will receive a high school equivalency diploma issued by the SC Department of Education. Students who earn a GED are eligible to participate in our annual graduation exercise.

All students whishing to enter a GED preparation class are required to complete an initial assessment (link to assessment schedule) and attend an orientation session before beginning class.

Classes are offered both day and evening at Johnston Learning Center.
