Virginia’s Race to GED®: Education for Success - The Race to GED is a workforce initiative of the Office of Adult Education, Virginia Department of Education. The goal of the Race to GED® is to meet or exceed 20,000 Virginians passing the General Educational Development (GED®) Tests annually. GED® graduates are a vital component of a globally competitive workforce that strengthens existing business and supports economic growth and development in Virginia.
Race to GED® is an innovative approach to adult education based on two instructional programs: GED Fast Track and GED® Prep. These two programs assess what a person already knows and prescribe instruction to prepare adults for success on GED® Tests. The time it takes to earn a GED® is dramatically shortened, from one year required in traditional adult education, to three months or less with GED®Fast Track and only 180 days with GED® Prep.
The initiative targets working age adults, 18 to 64 years of age, who are employed or employable and can demonstrate academic readiness to prepare for and pass the English version of the GED® Tests. GED® graduates are competent in the workplace, qualified for advancement to higher-level skills, and capable of achieving in post secondary education or technical-skills certification.
