What is a GED Bootcamp?

Greenville Literacy’s GED Bootcamps are accelerated programs designed to help participants graduate with their GEDs in 14 weeks or less.  Because these programs move quickly, qualifying TABE scores in reading and mathematics are required to enroll. Bootcamp students prepare for the four GED subject tests one at a time and take their practice tests and official GED tests as they complete each subject. This allows new students to enroll every two to five weeks rather than waiting for the beginning of the next 14 week cycle.

Class fees: $40 per 10-week term.
