In this article, you can find a full listing of GED® prep locations and test centers in and around Norwalk.
The state of Connecticut uses the computer-based GED test for its HSE (High School Equivalency) testing program.
The GED is for adults who did not finish high school and gives them one more chance to earn a degree that is equivalent to a high school diploma.
Testing occurs at a similar level as what may be expected of graduating HS students.
There are four GED modules (or subtests) in Literacy, Social Studies, Math, and Science.
You are allowed two years to complete the entire GED battery.

Norwalk Public Schools Continuing Education
The Norwalk Public Schools Continuing Education Program provides GED, Basic Skills, ESL, and High School Diploma to Norwalk, Wilton, Weston, and Westport residents 17 years and older. The GED program prepares adults to pass the four-part computerized exam to earn their State of Connecticut diploma. Students receive lessons in the four subject areas of the GED test: Science, Social studies, Math, and Literacy (Language Arts).
GED classes are available to residents 17 years or older and who are officially withdrawn from school. Applicants are required to complete testing prior to registration for proper placement. Evening GED classes in both English and Spanish are held at Brien McMahon High School. Morning GED classes (English) are held at the Carver Center. GED classes in Spanish are also offered at Brookside Elementary School on Saturday mornings.
The GED test was totally overhauled, and this was necessary to ensure that it stayed (or became again) in line with contemporary higher educational requirements and company demands. Test takers must command basic keyboarding and computer skills to take the GED and this makes sense, as there is practically no job out there where these competencies are not required. Now, GED graduates will be better prepared again for the contemporary work floor and a college education.
One GED subtest at a time
The four GED subtests can be taken separately but must be completed within a period of two years. In New Jersey, you need to be at least 17 years of age, but 17 and 18-year-olds must be officially withdrawn from school and provide parental consent. The state subsidizes high school equivalency testing. The GED exam (the entire set of four tests) costs you only $13.00 (under 21 and veterans: free). The GED passing score for each module was reduced to 145 a few years back. Read more on this GED News Page. The GED has four modules that are scored on a 100-200 scale. On each module, the passing score is 145, and averaging is no option.
