Congratulations Adult Ed Graduates!

ADULT EDUCATION:

Three Pathways to success

We help adults build brighter futures by helping them get their GED or gain skills in the English language. The Kent ISD Adult Education Program has three locations where every student can reach their goals.  Morning, afternoon and evening sessions are offered to meet the needs of students and their work and family schedules. Teachers provide interactive lessons in class as well as field trips to local libraries, the Rapid Bus system and community organizations for real-life experiences. Adult education can also include career readiness, professional advancement, citizenship and family literacy.

English as a Second Language (ESL)

 

We help adults learn English when it is not their native language. ESL helps students work on communication skills needed for work, at home and in day to day activities.  This program is for beginning through advanced students who want to improve their English language skills.  

High School Equivelency (GED)

 

The General Education Development (GED) program helps adult students earn their high school equivelency certificate. Teachers help students age 18 or older prepare for the GED test in four subjects: Math, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts. Students learn from teachers in class and online with computer programs. 

Adult Basic Education (Pre-GED)

 

In Adult Basic Education classes, students work on basic literacy and math skills to help them prepare for the GED program.  The Pre-GED class also helps students become better prepared for employment.

I have been working in adult education for 12 years.  For me, seeing adult students grow as individuals, learning about their culture and life experiences, giving them another chance to be successful, and the passion that they bring to class, is what makes this work so important.
