High School Equivalency (GED® Test)

Summer Registration for Summer ESL & GED is CLOSED!

Please check back in August for classes starting in September.

Rockland BOCES provides preparation classes for the General Educational Development Test (GED® Test), which has replaced the TASC® exam as a pathway to a high school equivalency diploma. The GED® Test assesses four subject areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Preparation classes are free to students ages 21 and older who have not earned a U.S. high school diploma or equivalency. Classes are held mornings or evenings in Nyack and evenings in Spring Valley.

Students must attend an orientation to enter the preparation program. All students are given an assessment to determine competency levels in reading and mathematics. Curriculum is then tailored to their needs. Call (845) 348-3500 to get started!
