Adult & Continuing Education

In case of inclement weather, class cancellations will be broadcast on  WVIT  – Channel 30 and WFSB – Channel 3 (Evening classes are always cancelled when Newington Public Schools are closed during the day).



Classes are open to all area residents seventeen years of age or older who are no longer in school. All classes are held at the high school unless otherwise noted in the course description. While non-residents are welcome to enroll, Newington residents will be honored first when class size limit has been reached.  Classes will begin the week of February 26, 2024.


Course fees vary depending on the length and nature of the course. Materials and textbooks needed for each course are extra, unless otherwise stated in the course description. Senior citizens (62+ years old) are entitled to a reduction in course fees. Non-residents will be charged an additional $10.00.  In compliance with the Connecticut General Statute 10-73a, there is no fee for registration, books or materials to any adult enrolled in  ABE, Citizenship, ESL  or high school completion programs. 

Registration is complete and guaranteed only upon payment. Checks are to be made payable to Newington  Adult Education. Fees for the  Adult Education courses will be returned if a course is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment. No refunds will be made after classes have begun.
