What is Adult Education?

Adult Education programs are for adults who have not yet completed high school. Here is your opportunity to increase your education, whether you want to enter employment or get a promotion that is currently out of reach. Often called "GED Prep" classes, high school education and employment skills are presented in a relaxed atmosphere by teachers who want you to succeed. All Adult Education classes are FREE.
