GED Training Program

Making the decision to return to school for your GED is a commitment to bettering yourself and we commend you for it. We take your commitment seriously so that’s why Summit Academy has developed a GED training program that will help you succeed from start to finish. Our GED training is all in-house, you have all your classes here and you do your testing here. We are also a certified Pearson Vue testing center, so your testing is done in-house as well. Taking the GED Test can be costly, especially if you have to take the test multiple times, so we carry the cost for that as well. We only ask you to give us 10 weeks to receive your GED and from there you can go into three different career paths. Healthcare, Construction, or IT the choice is yours.

The GED, General Educational Diploma, is a battery of test to certify your aptitude, knowledge, and skills. Once passed the test it certifies the individual has met high-school level academic skills. The TABE, Test for Adult Basic Education, is a diagnostic test used to determine a person’s skill level. Summit uses the TABE test for admissions as proof of satisfactory performance.



1. What is the cost of the program?

Our program cost at NO COST and NO LOAN to you. We use a combination of government funding, and fundraising to make sure you pay nothing out of pocket.

2. Can I use my old GED score?

GEDs received prior to 2014 ARE valid. Any incomplete test batteries (did not complete all tests) prior to 2014 are invalid.

3. I have been incarcerated before, can I use that GED.

Yes, BOP can be a good place to start. If you started taking GED tests after 2014 while incarcerated, you will need to contact GED testing service to have your test scores transferred to an updated account. If you took GED tests prior to 2014 and DID NOT complete the full battery, your scores are invalid and you will need to start over. If you are looking for your GED record because you completed the full battery while incarcerated (before or after 2014) you should submit a GED record request from the Department of Education or

4. I have a disability. Are accommodations available?

Accommodations are available to qualifying individuals based upon documentation. Assistance can be obtained by contacting 612-377-0150. You can also contact PANDA for additional assistance
