GED Classes Newark, New Jersey

This article includes a listing of all GED prep sites and test centers in the Newark, New Jersey area. New Jersey uses two options for high school equivalency testing, the HiSET and GED exams.

Pass the GED in 2 Months

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


The assessments provide people who did not graduate from high school with the chance to obtain an equivalent credential.

The GED® exam has four individual subtests in English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science.

You don’t need to complete the four GED modules (subtests) in one take. You can deal with them one at a time.

The  HiSET® test has five tests (that can also be taken individually) as their literacy sections include separate writing and reading tests.

In New Jersey, both options must be taken on a computer. On this page, we list all options in the Newark area.
