GED Classes Brooklyn, New York

Listed in this article are all GED prep class locations and testing sites in Brooklyn. New York State used the TASC exam for high school equivalency testing from 2014 until the end of 2021, but this program was discontinued.

The GED test gives people who did not graduate high school the opportunity to obtain an equivalent diploma. Don’t worry about earlier passing scores on sub-exams of the TASC since these are also good for your GED!

Pass the GED in 2 Months

Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.


The GED® assessment includes four separate subject area tests in social studies, math, science, and literacy (reading and writing are combined).

In New York, the GED exam must be taken in person at a state-approved testing site. Online testing is not (yet) available in the state.

Testing occurs at a level that compares to that of high school students upon graduation.

The GED passing standards are set at a level that around 40 percent of HS grads would not be able to pass on their first attempt so becoming optimally prepared is your key to success!
