This article contains a complete list of GED and HiSET prep facilities and testing sites in the Leominster area. Massachusetts offers two options for high school equivalency testing, the GED and the HiSET.
Both exams are available in an online format and at certified testing sites.
The assessments give people who did not complete high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
Testing happens at a level that is comparable to what HS seniors must command upon graduation.
The GED® exam has four separate subtests (modules) in Math, Literacy, Social Studies, and Science.
You have the option to sit for one of the GED modules at a time. No need to deal with the entire GED battery in one take.
The HiSET® has separate reading and writing subtests, so five in total, that may also be dealt with individually.
HiSET testing can be done on paper and on a computer, whereas the GED exam is offered exclusively computer-formatted.
Online GED or HiSET testing was, until recently, no option. Recent developments, however, have changed that, and we’ve seen the introduction of both an online HiSET option and a GED online testing option. Learn more below.

Introducing Online HiSET And GED Testing
Until recently, you could not deal with the GED and HiSET exams online. Testing needed to be done at state-designated Massachusetts testing centers. This has all changed as we recently saw the introduction of the HiSET-At-Home online testing option, and also the GED test was introduced in an online format.
Learn more about the new ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ online testing option here: ‘The online HiSET exam,’ and for more detailed information about the new online GED testing option, check out this page: ‘The online GED test.’
Adults can earn a High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma, which qualifies them for admission to higher educational institutions, and the credential will surely lead to enhanced employment options. If you’re considering going the GED or HiSET track, make sure you’ll get as prepared as you can.
The tests are pretty rigorous, and well-prepared candidates have much higher pass rates. A few years ago, Massachusetts opted for the HiSET to replace the GED but decided to re-introduce the GED as well.
In Massachusetts, students looking to earn their GED or HiSET diplomas need to be at least sixteen years old and have a current picture ID. Students 16 & 17 years old, however, must also have written parental consent as well as a withdrawal letter from their last attended high school stating they were officially withdrawn from school.
So 16 and 17 years olds cannot schedule a GED or HiSET subtest until their official “Letters of Withdrawal” from their last schools have been approved by Massachusetts’ High School Equivalency Office. Letters of Withdrawal must be on official school paper with letterhead, including the school’s address and a reference phone number.
These letters must come from the Headmaster/Principal, include the last date the students attended classes and their withdrawal dates, and are required to be signed by the Headmaster/Principal or the school’s Head of Guidance.
Underage applicants must submit these Withdrawal Letters, including their names, phone numbers, and email addresses, to Massachusett’s High School Equivalency Office by email (ask your school for a current email address) or by regular mail to:
Massachusetts DESEHSE Office
75 Pleasant Street, 3rd Floor
Maiden, MA 02148
Once underage students are approved, they will receive an email (from GED Testing Service) notifying them they can schedule their GED exam.
