A GED student with books.

Your future starts here by earning your Maryland high school diploma.

Prepare for the GED®

Enroll in classes to prepare for the four subject areas covered on the GED® examination. GED® classes are currently 69 hours and the tuition is $115.00. If you have already passed parts of the GED® or GED Ready®, you may enroll for less hours at a reduced cost.

Evening and morning classes are held at Elkton Station and the MRDC Family Education Center year-round. Evening classes are held at North East Middle School, Perryville Middle School and Rising Sun Middle School at designated times throughout the school year.


To be eligible for GED® class, students must assess at GED® level on the math and reading assessments or score 140 or above on the GED® Ready test which is administered the first Friday of every month or by appointment. Students can choose to take all four GED Ready® tests at once for a $20.00 fee or pay $5.00 per individual test.


Free two day Orientation/Assessment classes are held several times a week at Elkton Station. Call Suzanne O'Bryan at 443-907-1394 to schedule the Orientation/Assessment class or the GED Ready® test. You may also want to look at some frequently asked questions to learn even more.
