GED General Educational Development

Our Fall classes have begun. The next registration for classes is January 13th and 14th. Classes run January 26th - April 30th.

GED Classes

Adults who have not completed high school may take the GED Exam to demonstrate that they have the academic and thinking skills normally gained through a high school completion program. Individuals who pass all sections of the GED Test are awarded a Connecticut State High School Diploma.

WERACE offers a GED preparation program to help students prepare for this rigorous examination.  Classes prepare students for all sections of the exam with a focus on reading, writing and mathematics. Students may also enroll in Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes then progress to GED classes when ready. 

GED classes are offered both day and evening.  Daytime classes are offered at 10 Crosby Street, Danbury, and evening classes are offered at Danbury High School, 43 Clapboard Ridge Road, Danbury.  

Students who are 17 years old must submit documentation that a parent or guardian has signed them out of a Connecticut high school and that they have been out of school at least six months.  Students who are 18 years old must submit an official letter from the last Connecticut high school attended certifying that their class has graduated or that they have been withdrawn from school for at least 6 months.
