The Adult literacy program has been in existence for over 15 years. Our Computer classes are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M., our GED/ESOL morning classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 A.M. – 12:00 P.M. and our evening classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursday from 6:00 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. Our office is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00 AM. to 4:00 P.M.
We currently serve adults 18 years of age and older. We can admit 17-year-old participants as long as they have official proof that they are no longer registered in high school.
The Adult Literacy programs offer Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC), formerly HSE and GED Preparation Classes and Computer Classes. Students gain knowledge in core curriculum to pass the TASC test. We also offer Adult Basic Education (ABE), and English as a Second Language (ESOL). Students enrolled in computer classes will get beginners and advanced training in Microsoft Office Applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher).
We offer instructions in preparation for passing the TASC (GED) State exam, and basic instruction on computer and Microsoft.
