GED Classes Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This article lists all GED® and HiSET® prep locations and testing sites in the Philadelphia area. Pennsylvania offers two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and the HiSET.

Both the HiSET and GED are available online and at official Pennsylvania HSE test centers.

The (HSE) program offers adults who never completed high school the chance to acquire an equivalent credential.

Both HSE exams measure knowledge at a level that compares to that of graduating HS seniors.

The GED exam has four subtests (modules) in Math, Science, Literacy, and Social Studies that can be taken separately.

The HiSET has two literacy tests (reading and writing), so five in total, but these tests can be taken separately, too.

In the past, there was no online HSE testing option. Applicants had to show up at an official Pennsylvania HSE test center.

This has now changed, however, with the launch of HiSET and GED online proctored exams. Check below, at the bottom of this page, for more details.

Introducing online proctored GED and HiSET testing

HiSET and GED testing was, until recently, never possible over the internet. The exams had to be dealt with, in person, at one of Pennsylvania’s official state-approved testing facilities. But now we witnessed the introduction of online proctored HiSET and GED tests as well.

For more information on the HiSET online proctored exam, check out the following post: ‘Welcoming an online HiSET test-taking option’ and to get informed about the recently introduced online GED testing option, go to ‘Welcoming online proctored GED testing’.
