GED Learning Circle sessions are held in person two times a week at West Middle School on the 927 Asylum Ave Hartford, CT 06105 side:

Tuesdays – 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Wednesdays –  3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Circle members can attend both sessions, Tuesdays only, or Wednesdays only, as their schedules allow. Free parking is available. If you are already a Circle member, please contact your instructor(s) directly for up-to-date information on parking and transportation.

Individual study plans are drawn up with an instructor at time of enrollment. Those who join are required to complete most of their study outside of Learning Circle in-person hours and to maintain regular attendance according to the schedule they set with the instructor(s).
Additional one-on-one tutoring for GED math skills outside of regular Learning Circle hours is also available.


The General Education Diploma (GED) is one of three options towards attaining a high school diploma in Connecticut. The other two options include:

  • Adult High School Credit Diploma (AHSCD): Credits toward a local diploma are obtained through a prescribed plan that requires a minimum of 20 credits in academic and elective areas. Credits for work or military experience, independent study projects and online courses are additional ways to obtain credit.
  • National External Diploma Program (NEDP): This program is designed for adults who have gained skills through life experiences and demonstrated competence in a particular job, talent or academic area. The NEDP is an online portfolio assessment program that offers no classroom instruction. An adult who successfully completes the portfolio assessment, as required, is awarded a high school diploma.


Your instructor will recommend the most appropriate program for you. The determination is based on your prior education, work experience, and a placement test during your enrollment. To schedule an interview please complete the form below:
