GED Classes

When students register for GED classes, they are given a math and reading assessment to determine their class level. The three levels include Basic Skills, Pre-GED, and GED. These classes teach essential skills needed to succeed in the GED program. The highest-level GED class prepares students to pass the four official GED tests at a testing center. These tests include Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.

GED classes are taught at 1 Social St in Woonsocket RI, the Woonsocket Public Library, and the Cumberland Public Library. We offer morning, afternoon, and evening classes.

Classes have both online and in-person options. For the online classes, teachers post weekly assignments on a Google Classroom webpage and give students feedback on submitted assignments. Video classes discuss new and previously assigned material. Students schedule individual video chats with teachers when they would like extra help.


To register for any Project LEARN class, call 401-769-4200. Please leave a message with your name, phone number, and whether you are interested in GED, NEDP, or ESL. A staff member will return your call and set up a registration appointment. Face-to-face GED, NEDP, and ESL classes are currently available at our Woonsocket and Cumberland locations. Our online classes are available to students across Rhode Island and neighboring states. Registration appointments are held at our Woonsocket location.

Take the online practice tests on GED.com if you want to see if you are ready for the official tests.
