For nearly 50 years, Ridgefield Continuing Education, a self-sustaining program of Ridgefield Public Schools, has provided enriching courses to participants (age 18 and older) from Ridgefield and nearby communities. We currently provide several hundred courses (new courses and continuing favorites) per year that have helped many people achieve success and/or relaxation, whether it be employment or language skills, fitness and wellness, bridge, history, genealogy, knitting, crochet, arts and crafts, gardening, guitar, or a new hobby.

ADVANCED REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED - You can Register Now - the sooner the better! Classes start at various times year round. Please email ridgefieldcontinuingeducation@gmail.com or phone (203) 431-2812 or click Sign Me Up! for registration information.

Ridgefield Continuing Education follows the health, safety, mask, and social distancing policies currently in effect for Ridgefield Public Schools. These policies are subject to change as directives and advice change from the State of Connecticut. Wearing a mask indoors is optional at present, but anyone who chooses to wear a mask under any circumstance should feel comfortable doing so and we thank you!

Class sizes whether on Zoom or in person are limited in order to provide Q & A and a personalized experience. The online classes offer instructor continuity for future in person classes AND some classes will remain on Zoom.

Zoom classes continue as scheduled unless there are power issues. Some in person classes (and all hybrid classes) will be held on Zoom in inclement weather and a Zoom link will be sent to participants.

Whenever possible, we will email you if an early closure is announced (assuming we have power), so check your email before going to class. Please provide your best email when you register.

If the weather is bad, ridgefield.org will have a "pop up" notice if school is closed or closing early. If the weather gets bad after the close of school, check your email or (203) 431-2812 for a message. Thank you.
