What happened to the GED?
GED is one of three tests used nationwide to determine high school equivalency and award the high school diploma. States choose which test(s) they will adopt. In January 2014, New York State discontinued GED and began administering TASC.


There are a few steps to the admissions process. It begins with diagnostic testing. The program assistant at either location can provide all details and schedule you for a first appointment.


PCAP classes cover the five major domains of the TASC HSE exam: Language Arts Reading, Language Arts Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The theme of College and Career Exploration is woven into every subject area as well, and there are several College/Career Readiness Workshops included in the class schedule.

Classes meet three days per week for three hours per session for 14 weeks. A fourth day of classes is added in the final five weeks of the semester.

Anyone who is admitted into the program is required to attend all three days of classes, plus any other noted days/times. A set schedule is provided well in advance of the start of the course.

Students admitted to the PCAP Program can attend the program free of charge.
