GED Classes Nashville, Tennessee

Posted here are all GED (in Tennessee: HiSET) prep classes and test facilities in the Nashville area region. In Tennessee, you’ll need to pass the HiSET if you wish to earn your high school equivalency diploma.

HiSET testing is offered online and at state-certified HiSET test centers.

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, like the GED®, gives individuals who couldn’t graduate high school an extra chance to obtain an equivalent diploma.

Some HiSET students perform better when guided by a teacher at one of the physical prep sites listed in this post. Others may do well with an accredited online course. This website offers free practice tests and lessons to help you see if online learning is a good fit for you.

If so, we recommend you continue with the online program designed by Onsego GED Prep, an engaging GED program. As HiSET and GED contents are similar, you can study with this accredited, affordable course to prepare for the HiSET exam as well.

The HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) comes with five modular subtests that measure skills and knowledge in the following subject fields:

  • English Language Writing
  • English Language Reading
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Mathematics

Testing occurs at a similar level as what HS seniors must know upon graduation.

HiSET testing is possible on paper and in a computer-based format.

In the past, there was never a way to deal with the HiSET exam online. Your personal appearance at an official testing site was required.

The recent launch of the HiSET-At-Home exam, however, has changed that. More details are found at the bottom of this page.

Launching the Online HiSET-At-Home Test

In earlier days, there was never the option to take the Tennessee HiSET exam online. You always had to show up in person at one of the state’s official HiSET test centers.

Recently, however, we saw the launch of a new online option to take the five HiSET modules from your home. To learn more about this new HiSET-Exam-At-Home option, visit Launching the HiSET-Exam-At-Home.
