Adult Education

Our classes help you with basic skills in reading and writing, math, science, and social studies. Students can brush up on basic skills, or study to take the high school equivalency exam.

The classes are free to participants!

Everyone benefits in the adult education program. Adult learners can become self-sufficient, get better jobs, and become partners in their children’s education.

Demonstrating achievement, pursuing educational goals, persisting in learning, and becoming lifelong learners are our students’ goals.

Learning at a Distance

Distance learning classes are available if you can’t attend adult education classes.

You can work outside of the classroom at a location of your choice. You decide where and when to study and study at a distance with a teacher. Instruction is through video, Internet, and/or workbook exercises.
