GED Classes Los Angeles, California

Last Updated on April 10, 2024.

Posted here are all GED prep class locations and testing sites in the Los Angeles region. California uses the GED exam for high school equivalency testing purposes. The state additionally offers the HiSET exam for this purpose.

If you want to get started to prepare for the California HSE (High School Equivalency) exam, you can use this website’s free GED online classes and practice tests.

However, there are students who learn better when guided by an instructor. These students can contact one of the prep sites listed on this page.

If you want to start on the road to your GED diploma, use our free GED classes online. We feature over 100 of Onsego’s online video lessons and practice tests.

This way, you can see if working with an online course suits you well or if attending a physical GED prep class is more your thing. If so, check out the locations listed in this post. You should take our free GED practice tests to learn which subject areas you should focus on!

Both the GED® and HiSET® exams can be taken online or at one of California’s official testing facilities. Read more below.

It doesn’t matter when you left school

The exams offer adults who quit high school prematurely the chance to secure an equivalent credential. The GED is fully computerized and contains four separate modules assessing an applicant’s proficiency in these academic subjects:

  • Reasoning through Language Arts
  • Mathematical Reasoning
  • Social Studies, including Geography and Biology
  • Science, including Physics and Chemistry

You can sit for the four GED subtests (or modules) one at a time and in the order you wish.

The HiSET exam has separate reading and writing tests, so five tests in total, that can be taken separately as well.

Proctored Online GED and HiSET

The HiSET and GED exams are both available in an online format as well. Until recently, if you wanted to earn your HSE diploma, you were required to sit for the tests at an official California testing center. Online testing was simply not possible.

Now, that has changed as the HiSET and GED exams are offered in an online, proctored version as well. An online proctor will oversee your activities to check if everything goes according to the rules and regulations.
