Adult Education

Adult Education's Goal

Adult Education classes provide a second chance for people who did not graduate from high school.  Through participation, students improve their skills in reading, writing, mathematics, communications, and computer skills.  A diagnostic test is given to identify individual needs.  An individualized plan of instruction is designed to help each student reach his/her education goals.  Materials designed for adult learners are used.  Each student establishes personalized academic and work related goals.


Individualized instruction is provided whether in a group setting or by using a computer with appropriate instructional software.  The pace of the instruction is determined by the student.  Interactive group instruction and peer tutoring are frequently employed. Classes are held in a variety of locations and settings to meet the needs of the students.
