Adult Secondary Education

(High School Options)/GED® Test Preparation

Adult secondary education/GED® test preparation programs cater to the needs of adults who possess foundational literacy skills but face challenges in fully mastering essential academic competencies. These individuals may be proficient in navigating everyday tasks but still require support to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, problem-solving, and computation abilities to reach a level of proficiency equivalent to that of high school graduates. The instruction provided in these programs is specifically designed to address the unique learning needs and goals of adult learners, ensuring that they acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in earning a high school equivalency credential, such as the GED®. Through comprehensive and targeted instruction, participants in adult secondary education/GED® test preparation programs are empowered to overcome educational barriers, enhance their academic capabilities, and pursue further education or career opportunities with confidence and success.

Family Literacy

Family literacy is of paramount importance as it lays the groundwork for academic success, strengthens familial bonds, and fosters cultural preservation. By engaging in literacy activities together, such as reading and storytelling, parents and caregivers not only contribute to the development of essential language and cognitive skills in children but also create meaningful connections within the family unit. These shared experiences not only enhance academic achievement but also empower parents to actively participate in their children’s education, breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Furthermore, family literacy serves as a means of preserving cultural heritage, allowing traditions, values, and knowledge to be passed down from one generation to the next. Ultimately, family literacy is not just about teaching literacy skills; it’s about building strong foundations for lifelong learning, promoting positive family dynamics, and empowering individuals to thrive in their personal, academic, and cultural endeavors.

College and Career Readiness

College-Readiness entails the essential skills and knowledge for first-time college students to excel in credit-bearing courses. This includes proficiency in core academic subjects, critical thinking, problem-solving, and familiarity with college-level expectations, ensuring students are prepared for higher education success. Career-Readiness extends beyond academics to encompass technical and soft skills necessary for high school graduates to transition smoothly into their chosen careers. This includes effective communication, teamwork, and an understanding of industry standards, equipping graduates for success whether they pursue further education or enter the workforce directly.
