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. Persons 17 years of age or older who are not attending regular school are eligible for this program. Call 860.687.2000 ext 1273 for further information.

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. 1273.

Who Can Take the GED Test?

In order to register for the GED® examination, an individual must be at least 17 years old, present an official withdrawal form signed by a parent or legal guardian, and have been withdrawn from school for six months. Applicants that are 18 years of age may submit, in lieu of a withdrawal form, a letter from their last high school that the class with which they entered ninth grade has already graduated.
