GED Classes Richmond, Virginia

Here we post a complete overview of GED classes and testing facilities in the Richmond, Virginia, region. Virginia is using the computer-formatted GED exam for high school equivalency testing.

You can take the four GED tests online and at certified Virginia GED testing sites.

The GED® program helps adults who quit high school prematurely obtain an equivalent credential.

The GED (General Education Development) exam includes four subtests in

  • English Language Arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

You may opt to take one (or more) of the four GED subtests at a time; no need to sit for all four tests in one session.

It used to be that GED testing was only possible at an official Virginia GED test center. This has changed now, however, with the launch of an online proctored GED testing option. Learn more below at the bottom of this post.

Welcoming the Online GED Test

In earlier days, there was no option to sit for the GED exam in an online format. If you were looking to secure your Virginia GED credential, you always had to present yourself personally at an official, state-recognized Virginia testing center.

Recently, however, we’ve witnessed the introduction of a new online GED test-taking option, so all of that has changed. Qualifying students can now sit for the GED test in an online format from their homes.

A proctor will oversee online if their activities are in line with the regulations. To read more about this development, check out ‘The online GED exam.’
