GED® Academy Accelerated Learning Program

The GED Academy Accelerated Learning Program

The GED Academy core product is the comprehensive Accelerated Learning Program, a pre-GED, ABE, and GED learning program including everything for successful GED test preparation in one package and for one price.

1. Personalized Learning
The GED Academy built-in assessment process creates a customized learning plan for every single student and then adjusts the plan automatically as the student learns. No more one-size-fits-all teaching. You always know where every student is on the learning curve and how you can maximize that student’s progress. Learn more about our customized learning plans for each student.

2. A Richer Learning Experience
Adult schools can now immerse students in rich, highly engaging audio/visual learning environments that increase motivation and desire to learn. GED Academy online learning builds a nurturing learning scaffold around adult learners to give help when it’s needed and at the same time build adult literacy, independent learning, and thinking skills needed for continuing education and the workplace. Take a quick demo of our interactive lessons.

3. Increased Instruction Time
The GED Academy online prep program will dramatically increase student study time with computer home study, mobile study on cell phones, and easy online access in the workplace or local library. Students can easily triple their study time and speed their gain in adult basic education, pre-GED, and GED® skills and subjects. Learn how we increase study time.
