GED Classes Atlanta, Georgia

This page lists all GED prep facilities and testing sites in the Atlanta area. Georgia is using two options for its high school equivalency testing program, the GED and HiSET exams.

The exams offer persons who left high school prematurely one more chance to earn an equivalent diploma.

Pass The GED in 2 months.

Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.

There are 4 separate GED® subtests (modules) that you may complete one at a time if you wish.

The four testing subject areas are Social Studies, English Literacy, Math, and Science.

The HiSET® exam comes with separate writing and reading subtests so five in total.

The GED is fully computer-based while the HiSET can be taken on paper or on a computer.

There is now also an online GED and HiSET testing option. You were required to come to an official Georgia GED testing site and sit for the tests in person.


We recommend the Online GED Program from Onsego. It’s Simple, Fast & Easy. Onsego Provides Everything You Need to Pass Your GED.
Get Started.

That has changed, however, with the introduction of new, online, proctored GED or HiSET testing formats. Read more at the bottom of this page.

Online GED and HiSET testing introduced

Taking the GED or HiSET exam was, until recently, only possible at state-approved testing sites. There was no option to sit for the GED or HiSET test online. If you were looking to get hold of a Georgia HSE diploma, you had to come, in person, to one of the state’s official test facilities to pass the four GED or five HiSET subtests.

Now, with the arrival of a new online testing format, all of that is changing. When you use this online testing format, an online proctor guides you through the process and sees if all is done according to strict rules and regulations.

Visit this page: ‘Online GED testing’ to learn more about the online GED exam, and for more details about the new online “HiSET-At-Home” test, click here.
