GED® Preparation


Click here to download our current schedule of classes

Adults who have earned their high school diploma will earn thousands of dollars more in their lifetime than adults who don’t have this crucial career-building education.

We are a non-profit, and we offer a variety of courses to help prepare Alaskan adult students for the GED® exam. This includes teaching academic skill building classes with an emphasis on reading, writing, math, science and social studies (which is what the GED® test is composed of). The Alaska GED® is a high school diploma alternative for adults who didn’t graduate from a standard high school experience.

If you’re wondering how to continue your education and build your resume now as an adult, Nine Star is an approved GED® testing facility in Anchorage. We offer affordable adult skill building classes and career education to help prepare for the exam. On average, we charge $50 per semester of classes, which includes all fees and course materials – but there are some scholarships available for those who can’t afford this cost. Low-income adult education is also available.

If you are committed to the coursework and building your skill to take the GED® test, we are committed to helping you through the process and supporting you! Passing the GED® exam as an adult is important career step and resume piece.

Nine Star instructors are committed to student success. If you’re a high school dropout who is ready to prepare for the GED® exam in Alaska, we want to help you.

Please contact us today. Don’t wait – you have your whole career ahead of you!

It was not easy, but I did it. With the help of family, friends, and my teachers, I was able to get my GED diploma and now get accepted to UAA. If I can do this, everybody should give it a chance and believe in themselves.

I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for all your help and encouragement through this process. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without each of you! It means the world to me and I’m just very grateful for you all!
T. D. - 2021 Graduate

The diverse classroom environment at Nine Star has always felt comfortable, energetic, and very welcoming. I looked forward to attending all the GED classes! Yes, it wasn’t easy at times, but with my fellow students, extraordinary teachers, and amazing staff, becoming a GED graduate was possible! Nine Star is the best GED program anyone could ever ask for. Thank you, GED family, for this opportunity and for believing in me! I am extremely happy to have finally graduated! And now on to my next goal: college!
