GED Classes Erie, Pennsylvania

Listed here are all GED and HiSET prep classes and testing sites in the Erie region. Pennsylvania welcomed the computerized GED exam for its high school equivalency testing program.

The state additionally embraced the HiSET alternative that’s offered both on a computer and on paper.

Pass the GED in 2 Months

Learn Just 1 Hour a Day.
It doesn’t matter when you left school.


Both options can be taken online or at state-approved test centers.

The high school equivalency testing program offers adults who quit high school prematurely one more chance to get hold of an equivalent degree.

The GED® exam contains four separate tests in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science. You have the option to deal with the four GED subtests one at a time.

The HiSET® comes with five tests (the literacy part has separate writing and reading tests) that can be done separately, too.

It used to be that if you wanted to sit for the GED or HiSET exam, you needed to come, in person, to one of Pennsylvania’s official testing facilities.

Welcoming online GED and HiSET options

In the past, to sit for the Pennsylvania GED or HiSET exam, you had to go in person to an official state-designated HSE testing facility. Online testing was never an option. That’s changed, however, with the launch of online proctored HiSET and GED options.

For more information about the newly launched HiSET online test, check out this article: ‘The online HiSET exam,’ and for information about the new GED online test-taking option, visit ‘The online proctored GED exam.’
