Why take the GED Exam?
Get your GED and Get Ahead!
Not having your high school diploma can seriously affect your future earning potential. Last year, the average wage for a person with a high school diploma was $35,000 per year, compared to only $25,000 for a person without one. That amounts to over $500,000 less earnings during a your entire career!
A high school diploma or its equivalent is also necessary for acceptance to college so getting your diploma will help you earn more and get ahead. If you left high school without graduating and your high school class has graduated, you are probably eligible to take either the GED (if you live in New Jersey) or the TASC (if you live in New York).
Over 18 million adults have earned the GED diploma in recent years including some of the most successful people in the country. These include: super model Raquel Zimmerman (one of Dr. Donnelly's students!), Olympic gold medallist Mary Lou Retton, former New Jersey Governor James Florio, and Wendy's founder Dave Thomas.Click on the links below to learn more:
