High School Equivalency (GED)

This course helps students prepare for the General Educational Development (GED) Testing Program, which may lead to a state high school diploma. It reviews the fundamentals of Mathematics, English, Social Studies and Science. Textbooks require a refundable deposit of $25. Persons 17 years of age or older who are not attending regular school are eligible for this program.

What is the GED?

The GED® Computer Based Test Series is designed to offer students an alternative route to a high school diploma. The four test series consists of Language Arts, Social Studies, Science and Mathematics. Students take these exams from the State of Connecticut. To register for the GED® Computer Based Test Series, students must start the process at ged.com and then appear in person at the Windsor Adult Education office, 601 Matianuck Avenue, Windsor. 860-687-2000, ext. 271.

Who Can Take the GED Test?

In order to register for the GED examination, an individual must be 17 years of age or older and no longer enrolled in school. Applicants 17 and 18 years old must submit documentation that they have been withdrawn from school for at least six months prior to registration.
