Adult Education

New student registration is closed for the 2021- 2022 school year but please fill out the form above and we will contact you in August to sign up for classes!

Pathways to success

We help adults build brighter futures by helping them get their GED or high school diploma, gain skills in the English language, and through Career and Technical Education (CTE). Our program has two main locations where every student can reach their goals.  Morning, afternoon and evening sessions, as well as online classes, 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, specific training for skills and careers, citizenship and family literacy.
