Community for Accredited Online Schools

To go to the Community for Accredited Online Schools Resource

The Community for Accredited Online Schools has created a resource for adults who are attempting to take a national high school equivalency exam. It details which exams are accepted in each state, as well as defining each type of high school equivalency exam, the costs associated with each exam, and related information to the exams. The resource also provides you with study strategies and provides additional resources to these soon-to-be test takers.

1 in 3 black men aged 20 to 34 who are behind bars lacks a high school diploma or GED. Among Hispanic males in the same age group, 1 in 14 lacks a high school diploma or GED; for white men, the rate is 1 out of 8. The first step in breaking this cycle is empowering Black and Hispanic males with the opportunity to obtain a GED.
