Welcome to our Winter/Spring 2017 Semester!
I am excited to welcome new and returning community members to our LifeLearn program. Continuing Education in West Hartford believes that lifelong learning contributes to personal fulfillment and positive community engagement. Our LifeLearn program offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for residents and neighboring community members at every stage of life:
- Adult Education academic offerings range from Citizenship and English language instruction to high school diploma preparation classes such as General Education Development (GED) and the National External Diploma Program (NEDP).
- Adult Enrichment offers dynamic learning opportunities in technology, the arts, home and gardening, languages, personal development and much, much more. In addition to local nature and outdoor experiences, day and overnight interstate trips and guided tours offer rich education and adventure.
- For pre-K – grade 12 students, summer learning and year-round enrichment options are available to keep them mentally and physically active.
Our LifeLearn catalog is accessible online. For your convenience, our office also accepts registrations by phone, fax, mail or in person.
As we seek to build a community of engaged lifelong learners, we invite you to join our team as a student or instructor.

A limited number of our talented LifeLearn faculty is available to provide classes to your group, at your location, at your convenience. This is a wonderful opportunity for businesses to provide relaxed, job-related training; social groups to provide entertainment; or a group of friends and/or neighbors with the same interests to have fun together while learning useful skills at a modest price. Please call Ruthann Kozlowski at (860) 561-6900 to discuss how we can bring the joys and benefits of our LifeLearn program to your doorstep.
