GED Classes Quincy, Massachusetts

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

Massachusetts offers two options for HSE (high school equivalency) testing, the GED and the HiSET.

The MA HSE exam gives adults who have not finished high school another shot at securing an equivalent credential.

Both options are administered at a level similar to what students learn over four years of high school.

The computer-formatted GED has four individual subtests that can be taken individually within a period of two years. This only counts for the GED!

The four GED subtests are in Math. Literacy, Social Studies, and Science.

HiSET testing can be done both on-paper and on-computer via 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: 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 HSE preparation course to get students all set for the MA HSE exam, and applicants will first have to attend an orientation & registration session.

Quincy HSE 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.
