Is completing your educational goals on your priority list?

Are you planning on entering the military or higher education system and need your GED?


Are you looking for work due to a job layoff, but did not complete your high school education?

Every year, hundreds of thousands of adults take the GED test in order to get jobs, further their careers, earn promotions, or qualify for education or training programs like those offered at a career or community college.

Passing this exam earns you a certificate that the majority of colleges, training schools, and employers in the nation recognize to be the equivalent of a high school diploma.

Believe! Achieve! Receive! Whatever the reason a person has for not receiving a high school diploma can be transformed into opportunities to succeed and achieve for their future.

Castro Valley Adult and Career Education High School Diploma and GED Test Preparation programs serve over 250 students each year ranging in age from 18 to 55 years. The classes are flexible in structure, with delivery and class times established to accommodate students’ life demands.

For some students, enrolling in the High School Diploma program may amount to making up a small number of missed credits. For others, taking the GED Test may be the best option. Careful attention and counsel is provided to each new student to evaluate transcripts as well as family and work obliga
