GED Classes Atlanta, Georgia

This page lists all GED® prep facilities and testing sites in the Atlanta GA area. Georgia is using the GED exam for its high school equivalency (HSE) testing program.

HSE testing offers persons who left high school prematurely one more chance to earn an equivalent diploma.

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.

There was no online GED testing option. You were required to come to an official Georgia GED testing site and sit for the tests in person.

However, now there was the introduction of a new, online, proctored GED testing format, which changed all of this. Read more at the bottom of this page.

Online GED testing introduced

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

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 ‘Online GED testing option’ to learn more.
