We are the leading education centre for GED preparation in Peel.
The GED Certificate is the high school equivalency credential recognized by employers, apprenticeship, and colleges. If you don’t have enough credits for a high school diploma (OSSD), the GED may provide the fastest route for achieving a high school equivalency.

Do I need to have a computer to participate in PALC programs?
In our current delivery model , most students are required to attend class both virtually and in-person. Therefore, you need access to a device and internet.
Are any classes virtual only?
I'm a second language learner. Do I need to provide proof of my CLBA test results?
Yes. You must have attained a CLBA level 6 in speaking and listening, and you need to be able to provide a copy of your CLBA test results. Note that reading and writing will be assessed before program entry as we must be sure you can successfully use the course materials.
What are the different goals that a GED can help me prepare for?
Successfully passing your GED test will prepare you for employment, post-secondary, or apprenticeship goal paths. Speak with our program assistant for more information.
Is the GED recognized by Apprenticeship Programs?
Yes, Apprenticeship Programs that require Grade 12 recognize the GED as equivalent.
Will the GED allow me to enter College Programs?
The GED will allow you to access some college programs without further testing. For other programs, you also may need to complete a Mature Student Test to gain entrance. Your instructor will work with you to ensure you are ready for both if necessary.
How else can I prepare for College at the Peel Adult Learning Centre?
We can prepare you for the Mature Student Test to gain entrance to college. Some programs don’t require math for entry, so some students prefer this option since GED preparation requires math.

PALC does not offer credit courses; however, we can help you prepare to enter certain credit courses. Speak to our program assistant to find out more or to gauge whether GED preparation is a faster way for you to attain your high school equivalency.
