Baltimore County Public Library does not offer GED classes or tutors.  We have books, dvds and online practice tests available to help you prepare for your GED test.  We also offer Brainfuse Adult Learning Center - High School Equivalency Preparation  Take practice tests and chat with a testing coach to help answer any questions you may have.  You need a Baltimore County Public Library card to access this service. 

The Community College of Baltimore County offers classes. These are usually held on each of their 3 campus locations and occasionally in other community locations throughout Baltimore County.

The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation and the U.S. Department of Education offer a GED preparation class available on the Web. To enroll in the Maryland Online GED Preparation Classes (http://www.mdadultedonline.org/ ) you must be:

  • a Maryland resident,
  • at least 17 years of age,
  • officially out of school,
  • able to demonstrate minimum 9th grade skills by pre-testing in math and reading at your local Adult Education program, and
  • committed to submitting at least 6 assignments and studying 5-6 hours per week.

Taking these online classes allows you to work at your own pace and prepare for all GED tests.
