GED Classes Boston, Massachusetts

Pass The GED in 2 months.

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

Both the GED® and HiSET® offer adults who did not have the chance to complete their regular high school education.

This way, they can earn a credential that is all over America recognized as the equivalency of a common HS diploma.

Both exams assess academic proficiency at a level that compares to that of high school grads.

The HiSET has five subtests in Language Reading, Language Writing, Math, Science, and Social studies that can be taken separately.

The GED has four subtests (writing and reading are combined in one Literacy test) that also can be taken independently.


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

The GED must be taken on a computer whereas the HiSET is offered both on-paper and on-computer.

Until recently, there was no possibility to take the HiSET or GED exam over the internet. But now, both high school equivalency exams have introduced online testing options. Learn more below.

Online GED and HiSET test-taking options introduced

Until recently, you couldn’t take the HiSET or GED test online. That has now changed, however, with the introduction of online test-taking options for both the GED and the HiSET exam.

You can learn more about the ‘HiSET-At-Home’ Exam on this page: ‘HiSET can now be taken online’, and for information about taking the GED exam online, check out: ‘A new option to take the GED exam online’.
