NEDP - National External Diploma Program

The National External Diploma Program (NEDP) provides students with a path towards high school completion. It is an ideal program for students who are motivated and self-directed. Students individually work with an assessor to demonstrate high school level mastery of skills. The program takes approximately  9 -12 months to complete and provides the graduate with a high school diploma that is accepted by colleges, jobs, and training programs. A Vernon Regional Adult High School Diploma is awarded upon successful completion of the program.


Presently available at :
Rockville Learning Center
33 West Main Street

Wethersfield High School
411 Wolcott Hill Rd
Wethersfield, CT




As of March 2008 VRABE has begun implementing an orientation that all students contemplating a high school diploma must attend before beginning classes. The orientation session is structured to inform the students of the three options they have to get a diploma, CDP (Credit Diploma Program often referred to as "evening school"), NEDP (National External Diploma Program), and GED (General Education Development).

At the sessions the programs are described and students participate in a goal-setting activity. CASAS appraisal testing is also administered. Students will then schedule a one-on-one meeting with a counselor to develop a plan for achieving their diplomas.
