About New Milford Adult Education
New Milford Adult Education provides programs that prepare community participants to obtain skills, from basic literacy to personal fulfillment courses, learn English and complete a high school education. The Adult Programs serve students within the New Milford School District as well as throughout Region 12.
The mandated programs (High School completion, ESL and Citizenship) are funded by the New Milford Board of Education, the Connecticut State Department of Education and the United States Department of Education.
Community enrichment classes are funded through participant fees, which New Milford strives to keep at low cost.
How Does Adult Education Benefit the District and the Community?
Adults who left school before graduating can resume school and earn a New Milford high school diploma
Adults, youth, and children can extend or enrich learning through non-credit Continuing Education classes open to all persons in the community
Parents can increase their own literacy skills and at the same time learn ways to help their children increase literacy readiness for school
Adults who are speakers of other languages can learn English and learn about their new communities, their new culture, and citizenship skills needed for family and work success
Adult programs as part of the school district enable the entire family to engage together in learning
Adult programs become possible alternative options when a learner is struggling to reach a goal
Adult programs increase the value of the community investment in school facilities by extending their use as learning centers beyond the traditional school hours
Adult programs provide settings in which members of the community can learn from each other
Adult programs facilitate a more literate population with enhanced successes in the family, at work, and in school and community involvement
