Adult Education

Adult Education

Our students come to our learning centers for a variety of reasons. Mostly, people want to earn a GED® diploma so that they can go to college or get a better job. Others want to be able to help their children with their homework while many want to achieve some personal goal in life.  Regardless of your goal, our staff is here to help.  We value education because it changes lives.  We value our students because they have the courage to leave the past behind, walk into one of our learning centers, and begin a positive step toward the future.

Our classes are free and, in most locations, day and evening instruction is available.  While you’re with us, we’ll expect you to work hard but also let us know when you don’t understand something.

We’re in this together, and that means when you succeed, we succeed!
