Frequently Asked Questions

Adult Education Programs

Adult Basic Education
Adult Basic Education provides instruction designed for adults who are unable to read, write and compute sufficiently to meet the requirements of adult life and for adults who lack mastery of basic educational skills that will enable them to function effectively in society.

English Language Acquisition
Instruction is designed for adults who have limited proficiency in the English language or whose native language is not English. Instructional emphasis is on listening and speaking as well as reading and writing.

GED – General Educational Development
Adults who have not completed high school must demonstrate, through five exams, the attainment of academic skills and concepts normally acquired through completion of a high school program. Instructional programs provided throughout the Adult Learning Centers help individuals prepare for this rigorous test.

EL Civics
Instruction designed for foreign-born adults who wish to become United States citizens. Persons completing this program are prepared to pursue citizenship through the prescribed Immigration and Naturalization Service process.

Displaced Homemaker program
A program designed to provide the necessary counseling and guidance, job readiness training, and services for displaced homemakers so that they may enjoy the independence and economic security vital to a productive life and to improve the health and welfare of this ever-growing group of citizens.
