Community-Based GED and Literacy Programs

Community-Based GED and Literacy Programs

GED, Adult Diploma, and Literacy Programs are also available through numerous Philadelphia area organizations for students and adults 17 years of age and over.

As we compile more resources on these resources, we'll post them here. If you have information to share with our Region, feel free to e-mail us your links.

Below is some information and resources for GED.
