Adult Education Programs

GED Program

The Adult Learning Program strives to assist adults 17 years of age or older in acquiring the knowledge and skills necessary to earn a GED, to improve English language and Math skills and to transition to higher education or vocational training. This process encourages the adult learner to become more employable, to become a successful partner in their children's education, and to be a more productive member of the community.

Our staff is dedicated to working with students to identify their individual needs and interests enabling students to take an active role in their learning process.

Our goal is to provide relevant, student centered education classes to help learners meet their educational and life goals. We view education as a life long participatory process.

The GED program now teaches the DESE recommended Student Achievement in Reading program (STAR) which helps intermediate level readers progress to the next level preparing them more effectively for the GED test.
