GED Classes Quincy, Massachusetts

This article includes a list of all GED®-HiSET prep class locations and testing facilities in the Quincy, Massachusetts, area.

At these prep classes, you have the chance to become optimally prepared to take on the GED or HiSET exam confidently. Massachusetts decided in 2014 to offer the cheaper HiSET instead of the computerized GED exam but recently opted for both possibilities for the purpose of high school equivalency (HDSE) testing. Visit HiSET-GED in Massachusetts for qualification details.

Four individual GED tests

The GED has four individual subtests that can be taken individually within a period of two years: Math. Literacy, Social Studies, and Science. Both the HiSET and the GED (General Education Development) are administered by states and jurisdictions to measure knowledge and skills similar to a common high school course of study. Adults who have not obtained their high school diploma qualify for the GED and HiSET tests.


The HiSET, like the GED (General Education Development), is developed for adults who have not finished high school. The HiSET is offered both on paper and on a computer and has five subtests in the fields of English Writing, English Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Math.

*) Quincy College

Quincy College (both Quincy and Plymouth campuses) are now HiSET-GED (High School Equivalency) Testing Centers. Massachusetts joined Maine and New Hampshire to replace the GED with the HiSET exam by Educational Testing Service (ETS). Quincy College’s two campuses also became official Pearson VUE testing centers. In early 2017, Massachusetts decided to offer the GED as well.

The HiSET test includes five test areas, just as formerly the GED examination: literacy reading, literacy writing, math, science, and social studies. The HiSET is available in various formats (on paper or on a computer) and in English and Spanish. The GED comes with four separate tests (modules) that must be passed within two years.

The school offers a 10-week HiSET preparation course to get students all set for the HiSET exam, and applicants will first have to attend an orientation & registration session.

Quincy HiSET prep classes are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The prep course costs $350 (and this does not include the cost of books). If you want more information, you can call the school at 617-984-1617.
