Operation Equivalency is an organization that is set out to help individuals to achieve goals and objectives that will cause them to advance in the business world/academia.
Our mission has been and is to provide exceptional High School Equivalency/GED Test Readiness preparation (English & Spanish). We have also partnered with various organizations, dedicated to ensuring equitable opportunities for participants to promote academic continuity and a clearer path to success in education, work and life.
Operation Equivalency was founded in 2013. In our platform, we started with the original GED test prep. We have implemented our Core Subject Modules which include building key skills, strategies and content knowledge for the TASC & Common Core State Standard (CCSS), based on high school equivalency, college and career readiness exams. In addition to HSE, GED & TASC test readiness, we became an approved HSE Testing Site named the Maria Cruz Testing Center in 2016. In 2022, we transitioned back to the GED prep and testing according to the new and improved New York State HSE regulations. As an approved HSE Testing Site, we are proud to have the opportunity to test our students as well as individuals who apply to take the exam city wide, as walkins and through the 30 plus organizations that we work with to ensure test placement for their students. We chose to build relationships with other HSE readiness organizations so their students can have access to take the exam at our facility upon availability and readiness of the students. We have staffed highly trained professionals, qualified instructors, advanced-degree administrative personnel, certified counselors and a dedicated Board of Directors passionate about our mission.
