For over 30 years Ridgefield Continuing Education has provided courses that contribute to people’s employment, wellness, practical skills, and enrichment. Our programs are funded solely by course tuition and we thank the Ridgefield and nearby residents who enroll in our programs for their support. We provides over 100 courses, each semester, that have helped many people achieve success, whether it be employment or language skills, healthy cooking, fitness, Zen Flexibility, Meso American archaeology, arts and crafts, gardening, guitar, computers, photography, real estate, house and garden, fitness, wellness, art, knitting, history, and many more topics.
Please give some thought to setting aside time each week to explore something you are curious about. Connect with other people as you receive an in-person educational experience as you focus on self improvement and then share your viewpoints with others at a coffee shop or restaurant before or after class.
These courses are available to people age 18 and older that live in Ridgefield and neighboring communities. Please browse our course selection and let us know if you have any suggestions.
The Continuing Education office is in the Venus Municipal Building (use the RVNA entrance off Governor St., across from the Police Station). This location houses the Continuing Education office, all day classes, and all day and evening computer classes, and some of the other evening classes. Evening classes are located in several school buildings.
• Thank you to the Ridgefield Public Schools and the Town of Ridgefield for providing our facility space.
• Thank you to both Sylvia Sturges and Tom Bruno for the beautiful photos for our cover.
• Register early to increase course choices. Don't lose out on a class because you procrastinated, called at the last minute, and found out that it was already cancelled or full.
• We appreciate it when you pay by check because it helps us keep costs down.
• We appreciate it when you register early so that we can let the teacher know early if their class is running. It enables the teacher to plan their class.
• Please do not bring any food, particularly peanuts, nuts, or products containing nuts to class.
• Please mark dates, time, and location on your calendar. Date and location changes will be updated on the web site and students will be notified.
Please contact me if you have any questions. Thank you for your participation and consideration.
