This post lists all GED prep class locations and test centers in the Santa Ana region. California uses two options for high school equivalency testing: the HiSET and GED exams.
Both of these options can be taken online or at a state-approved testing facility. You can read more about online HiSET and GED testing below.
The exams are for adults who did not finish high school and offer another chance to earn an equivalent degree. Both tests measure academic proficiency at the same level that may be expected of graduating high school students.
The GED® exam must be taken fully on a computer, while the HiSET® is available both on paper and on computer.
There are four GED subject tests that cover the academic subjects of
- Social Studies
These subtests (independent modules) may be taken separately and in any order.
The HiSET exam comes with five subtests (separate Reading and Writing tests) that may be written separately as well.

Online Proctored GED and HiSET Exams
Students looking to acquire their HSE diploma in California can now sit for the GED or HiSET exam online as well. Until recently, there was never an online option to take the GED or HiSET exam. Your personal appearance at an official, state-approved testing site was required.
