Adult and Community Education

In cooperation with the Kansas Board of Regents, the Adult Education Program is designed to help adults increase knowledge and improve skills essential in today's world in several areas:

Pre-GED

Classes enable adults to improve their skills in reading, math, English, Science, and social studies. Employability skills, including beginning computer training, are also a part of the basic skills curriculum. These classes are open to all adults who wish to brush up on basic skills whether or not they have a high school diploma.

Community Education Non-Credit Programs

Community Education classes and workshops are designed for individuals with special interests. Options include programs in the area of driver safety (both vehicle and motorcycle), personal wellness, hobbies, musics, business, finance, and personal growth.

These programs are open to people ages 17 and older (unless otherwise specified). Class offerings are updated regularly on the Continuing Education Calendar, and individuals are encouraged to make requests or suggestions for program ideas.
