If you are an adult and want to learn English or improve your English language skills, or if you want to earn a high school equivalency diploma, a variety of classes are being offered day and evening to meet your needs.

In preparation for the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) examination (formerly known as the GED), classes are available to improve math, reading, science, social studies and writing skills.
Once enrolled, students may also take elective classes such as Conversational English, Crossroads Café and Citizenship at no additional charge.
