GED/High School+

In response to COVID-19, we are now offering GED/High School+ online! While you are stuck at home, we can help you move forward.

Hopelink’s GED/High School+ classes prepare students to earn their GED or high school diploma so they can get a better job, prepare for college, or fulfill their personal goals. Classes will only be offered online for the next several months due to COVID-19. We will resume classes at Hopelink centers in Kirkland, Bellevue, and Redmond when it is safer for public health.

We are accepting new and continuing students today! Contact Debbie at 425-457-9685 or dmargolis@hopelink.org.

About GED/High School+

GED/High School+ is a free program. Students choose to prepare for the GED exam or to complete courses that are currently missing from their high-school transcripts. Either way, they improve their reading, writing, math, and computer skills! Classes are small, so students can ask lots of questions and work at their own pace. Classes are held year-round. We welcome new students at any time.

Supporting students in reaching their goals is our passion. Career advocates are available to talk with students to explore next steps such as enrolling in college or getting a job that matches their skills and interests.

About GED/High School+ Online

  • Students will participate in an online social studies and science class led by the teacher two times per week. Each online class is about 1.5 hours.
  • Students and the teacher work together to create an individualized math study plan. Students will study at their own pace with virtual support from tutors (via phone, video chat, and/or text message).
  • Students will have an opportunity to talk with an advocate to set goals and think about what they want to do after they earn their GED or high school diploma.

  • need a high school diploma or GED
  • be able to participate in classes online and study regularly

What students say about GED/High School+ classes:

"The class setting is great. I enjoy when I get to come to class to progress towards my future."

"Math is my weakest subject. The tutors are outstanding, and they explain things in very easy to understand methods."

"I was able to finally understand how to do division, something that up until now I wasn't capable of because in typical school I wasn't allowed to explore division in a way I could easily comprehend."

"I want to thank my career advocate for taking the time to go over everything with me. I greatly appreciated it all. I walked out of our meeting feeling I actually had someone in my corner and not alone."

"I love how nice and helpful everyone is, and I love that everyone gets to go on their own pace. This class is the most helpful thing I have ever been in."
