54 Division Ave SGrand Rapids, MI 49503


The students that use the GED/Literacy and Workforce Development Program are primarily from the Heartside Neighborhood or from Kent County. These students come from all walks of life. They are homeless, domestic abuse victims, formerly inceratated, and/or middle class families.

These students come to Heartside and take a series of four pre-tests, which helps them pinpoint exactly what they need to work on to pass the GED/High school equivalency test. If a student passes the test, they will go on to pass the official GED test.

**We are a nationally accredited testing center and will pay for students to take the test at our site. We also work in Literacy, Work keys training and the CASAS testing.
