This article lists all GED (in Montana: HiSET) prep class locations and testing sites in the Helena area. Montana is using the HiSET exam for the state’s high school equivalency program.
HiSET testing is available in an online format and at state-approved HiSET test centers.
The exam is for people who never graduated high school and gives them another opportunity to earn an equivalent degree.
Testing takes place at a level that compares to that of graduating high school students.
The HiSET® exam consists of five modular subtests in Reading, Writing, Science, Maths, and Social Studies.
In the past, the HiSET exam, like the GED®, was exclusively administered at official test centers. Online HiSET or GED testing was not possible.
But now, we’ve seen some interesting developments with the introduction of the online ‘HiSET-Exam-At-Home’ option. Read more below.
The HiSET exam assesses skills and knowledge at a level comparable to that of high school students upon graduation.

Launching an online HiSET testing option
In the past, there never was an option to take the five HiSET modules online. Recently, however, we’ve witnessed a great development with the launch of an online option, the ‘HiSET-At-Home’ exam.
When you’ll be taking the online HiSET exam at home, a proctor supports you in the process and checks whether everything occurs correctly. To learn all about this development, visit this page: Launching the online HiSET test.
