This article lists all High School Equivalency prep facilities in Visalia and surrounding areas. California uses two options for its high school equivalency testing program: the GED and HiSET exams.
You can take both exams online or at an official test center. Check below to read more about online HiSET and GED testing.
The exams offer adults who quit high school prematurely the chance to earn an equivalent credential.
The GED® exam is entirely computer-based, while the HiSET® exam is offered both on-paper and on-computer.
The GED has four separate subtests (modules) that may be completed separately. The four tests cover the subjects of
- Social Studies
You can write these modules independently and in any order.
The HiSET exam contains five subject tests, as the Language portion is split up into separate writing and reading tests. The HiSET subtest can also be taken individually.

Online Proctored GED and HiSET Exams
Candidates for the California HSE (high school equivalency) credential can now take the GED or HiSET exams in an online format as well. It used to be that, to earn your HSE diploma, you were required to show up in person at one of California’s state-designated testing sites.
Well, that’s changed now! The GED and HiSET exams are available online as well, and an online proctor will monitor the process and guarantee that everything occurs in accordance with the rules. For more information, check out these articles: The online GED test and for the HiSET exam: online proctored HiSET testing.
