GED® Test Preparation Classes

These classes are designed for adult learners who feel that they can demonstrate high school level skills on a four-part, computer-based exam. Solid reading skills are required to pass the exam, but dedicated teachers will work with you to review reading, writing, math, and computer skills. Classes are offered to prepare you to take the GED® Exam. By passing four tests in the areas of Reasoning through Language Arts, Mathematical Reasoning, Science, and Social Studies, you can earn a CT State High School Diploma.

Individuals with a documented disability who may need accommodations for the GED® Test are requested to contact Pam Faley at the Adult Education Center 860-823-4299) or Sabrina Mancini, (State of CT) at 860-807-2125.

Pre-GED®/ABE/Academic Preparation for Adults

Students who need help with basic reading, writing, and math skills will be provided with pre-GED® materials in small friendly classes.

National External Diploma Program (NEDP)

This program is recommended for adults (usually over age 21) who are highly motivated, mature and self-directed; who have occupational skills; and have acquired life skill experiences. The program features flexibility and confidentiality. Before enrolling, you must take a reading, writing, and math assessment. Anyone interested in pursuing the NEDP should contact Joanne Semmelrock, NEDP Coordinator, at 860-823-4299.

English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Adult Education courses in English for Speakers of Other Languages teach limited-English speakers to read, write, speak and understand English. ESOL programs target non-English-speaking immigrants who need better English skills to become active members of the community, to prepare for employment or job advancement, or to take an active role in their children's education.

Citizenship Preparation

Adults who wish to become American citizens will be given the necessary books and assistance to help them prepare for the U.S. Naturalization Examination.
