Online Classes

Along with our GED and ESL classes at our physical locations, Project LEARN offers online learning opportunities that utilize a wide range of tools such as Google Classroom and Zoom. Many of our classes follow a blended-classroom model—meaning a combination of face-to-face classes and online materials. Some of our classes even have a fully online option. This can be perfect for students that are unable to get to our physical locations or have schedule conflicts with our physical class times. Online class options vary per class. You can ask what is available for your class when you register. 


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.

Frequently Asked Questions About GEDs

Where can I take the GED test?

We are not a testing center. Our classes prepare you to pass the GED tests. You can go to RIRAL or CCRI to take the 4 tests on a computer. The tests you have to pass are Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. You can take these one at a time. Take the online practice tests on GED.com if you want to see if you are ready for the official tests.

How much does it cost?

Our classes are free, but each GED test costs $30. If you can prove financial hardship (i.e. food stamps), you can apply for vouchers at RIRAL to take the tests for free. RIRAL’s # is 401-762-3841.

What do I need to take the test?

You will need a driver’s license or official state ID. If you are applying for a voucher, you must have proof of a passing score on each practice test on GED.com. Each practice test costs $6, but if you come to our building, you may take them for free.

What do I need to do to sign up for class?

You will need to come to our building to take a Math and Reading test to determine your class level.

How old to I have to be to enroll?

You must be at least 18.

What classes are available?

You will have one class that covers Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies, and one separate Math class. You can take these in-person or online.

What if I already passed some of my tests?

We can focus on the subjects you haven’t passed yet.

How many days per week is the class?

Two days per week.

How many students are in the classes?

In-person classes have a maximum of 6 students during COVID-19. Online classes have an unlimited number of students.

What is the online class like?

We use the Google Classroom webpage to post weekly assignments. You are expected to attend the weekly video lesson for both Math and the other subjects. So you will have 2 lessons per week. You will need a gmail account, a computer, and internet to participate in the online class.   

How long will it take to get my GED?

That depends on the class level you are in. The class levels will be determined based on your math and reading tests when you enroll. If you get a high score on these, you can try the GED practice tests to see if you are ready for the official tests.
