Why Should I join?

Obtaining a high school degree is necessary to obtain most jobs, and is an achievement you can be proud of! Grace Outreach’s High School Equivalency program is designed to help you pass the New York State GED exam. Grace Outreach provides students with classes to help pass the GED Exam, schedules you to test when our teachers think you’re ready, and celebrates your accomplishment with an end-of-the-year graduation ceremony.


Classes are conducted Monday through Friday, 9 am – 3:30 pm.

The Exam

The GED tests your math, social studies, science, reading, and writing skills. We help you schedule your exam date and give you directions to get there. Taking the exam is FREE!
