GED Classes Allentown, Pennsylvania

This page contains a full listing of GED® prep class locations and testing sites in the Allentown region. Pennsylvania welcomed the fully computerized GED for its HSE (high school equivalency) testing program.

Additionally, the state welcomed the HiSET® exam which is available both on a computer and in a paper-based format.

The HiSET and GED exams can be taken online and at state-certified test centers.

Pennsylvania’s HSE program is for adults who left high school without a diploma and gives them the chance to earn an equivalent degree.

Both HSE exams measure knowledge at a level that compares to that of graduating HS seniors.

GED testing is done via four independent modules (subtests) in literacy, math, science, and social studies.

The HiSET has modular five subtests as the Literacy Section comes with independent writing and reading tests.

Until recently, online GED or HiSET testing was not possible. You were required to come in person to an official state-approved GED testing site.

That has changed now with the introduction of online proctored HiSET and GED testing options. Read more below.

Online GED and HiSET testing

Pennsylvania awards the Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma (CSSD) to students who successfully took the HiSET or GED high school equivalency exam. Both tests had to be taken in person at one of Pennsylvania’s official testing centers, but that’s changed.

For more information on the online proctored HiSET testing option, check out this page: ‘Introducing the online HiSET exam’ and for more information about the newly launched online GED testing option, go to this page: ‘Welcoming an online proctored GED test-taking option’.
