About Us

The Continuing Education program provides illuminating, invigorating, and enjoyable courses, taught by experienced instructors, both in person (indoors and outdoors) and using live, interactive, online platforms (Zoom . . .). The Zoom classes allow you to attend in the safety and convenience of your own home or office.

Please call (203) 431-2812 if you need information about Zoom.

Some courses will be held OUTDOORS when weather permits. Zoom or an indoor location will be a backup for most of these classes. If a particular course does not use Zoom, a makeup will be added to the end of the session.

For over 45 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 the surrounding communities. We currently provide over 100 courses (new courses and continuing favorites) each tri - mester that have helped many people achieve success and/or relaxation, whether it be employment or language skills, healthy cooking, fitness, bridge, mah jongg, arts and crafts, gardening, guitar, or a new hobby.

Please set aside time each week to explore something you are interested in, connect with other people and participate in an in-person, educational, self-improvement experience and then share your viewpoints with others at a coffee shop or restaurant before or after class.

The Continuing Education Center is in the Town Hall Annex. This location houses the office, day classes, the computer/technology lab and classes, and day and evening Summer classes.

Thank you to the Ridgefield Public Schools and the Town of Ridgefield for providing our facility space and working with us.
