To enroll in adult education, an individual must be 17 years of age or older. Individuals who are 16 years of age and withdrew from school with parent consent prior to July 1, 2011 may also be eligible to enroll in adult education.

  1. If you are uncertain as to which program you want to participate in, bring in an official transcript of credits earned from a previous high school.
  2. An official withdrawal form from regular high school, signed by a parent/guardian (if under 18), school counselor, AND school administrator, is required.
  3. Three assessments in the areas of reading, math and writing are administered, when you make your appointment. These assessments will assist in finding the right program for you.
  4. A short survey regarding your personal goals, educational goals and time schedule will help you decide which program is best for you.
