Young people across Union County, New Jersey attend the Union County Educational Achievement Center (UCEAC) instead of a traditional public school. Here, our tutors help students prepare for the General Educational Development Test (GED).

The GED exam tests students' competencies in Mathematical Reasoning, Reasoning Through Language Arts (RLA), Science, and Social Studies. The student who passes all four subtests at an official GED testing center or through online testing will receive a state issued High School Diploma.

Our instructors are professionals with degrees in their area of instruction; we also hire college students with tutoring experience.

Each student has a tutoring plan and receives one-on-one tutoring or in a small group of up to four students. 

The educational materials used in the program are subject-specific online programs, tutorials, and hands-on projects.

We provide updates to parents and referrals sources by way of written progress reports, and face-to-face meetings.

This program is funded by the Union County Youth Service Commission through a Juvenile Detention Alternative Initiative grant.  The Youth Service Commission is part of the Union County Department of Human Services, Division of Youth Service.
