GED Classes Baton Rouge, Louisiana

This page lists all GED and HiSET prep classes and testing sites in the Baton Rouge region. Louisiana uses the exams for the state’s High School Equivalency (HSE) testing program.

The HiSET® and GED® exams offer persons who quit high school prematurely another opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.

Online GED Classes

A simple and easy way of getting your GED diploma.

Learn fast, stay motivated, and pass your GED quickly.


The HiSET exam includes five independent, modular subtests covering the academic subjects of

  • Science
  • Language Writing
  • Language Reading
  • Social Studies
  • Math

GED testing comes with four subtests, as the sections of writing and reading were combined into one Language Arts test.

The HiSET exam is available both on paper and in a computer-based format, while the GED test is fully computerized.

In the past, online HiSET or GED testing was not possible. Applicants needed to show up at an official Louisiana testing site.

Now, with the introduction of online HiSET and GED tests, that has all changed. Read more below.

The diploma that’s awarded upon successful completion of the exams is accepted by virtually all employers, government organizations, and educational institutions.

Introducing Online HiSET and GED Testing

Until recently, the HiSET and GED exams were not available over the Internet. If you wanted to secure your Louisiana high school equivalency (HSE) diploma, your personal appearance at one of the state’s official testing facilities was required. Now, this has all changed with the arrival of online proctored HiSET and GED testing options named the HiSET-Exam-At-Home and the OP (Online Proctored) GED Exam.

So now, you can sit for the four GED or five HiSET modules (one at a time if you wish) from your home using a new online testing format where a proctor sees if you do everything in accordance with the regulations. Check out ‘The online HiSET test’ to learn more. For information about the online GED Test, <- check here.
