Adult Education


Every Texan, regardless of age, is entitled to basic education.


The mission of adult education and family literacy is to ensure that all adults
who live in Texas have the skills necessary to function effectively in
their personal and family lives, in the workplace, and in the community.


Adult Secondary Education Classes

Adult Secondary Education classes include basic education and preparation classes for any of the Texas Certificates of High School Equivalency.  There are now three high school equivalency testing options in Texas:  the GED test, the HiSET exam and the TASC test.  Upon the successful completion of a single provider's exams, the test taker will be issued a State of Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency.

English as a Second Language

English as a Second language classes help adults improve their English proficiency with curriculum focusing on reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. ESL students will gain knowledge and skills that will help them become active and informed parents, workers and community members.
