Welcome to Maryland's Official Online Adult Education Site

Study for your high school diploma with Maryland i-Pathways. Maryland i-Pathways is a free, teacher-supported online learning program for GED® test preparation offered to Maryland residents. Maryland i-Pathways allows you to choose when, where and what you study. Do you need help in one part or all four parts of the GED® tests? Our program only assigns lessons in areas you haven't mastered. Although each session is scheduled for a maximum of 15 weeks, your customized learning plan may take less time.

Benefits of Maryland i-Pathways are that you can:

  • Study anytime and anywhere that you have access to the Internet.
  • Plan your study time around your work or family schedule and not the other way around!
