About Adult Education

Important Notice

At this time, our thoughts are with those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. and around the globe.  As we continue to monitor its local impact, the health and safety of our staff and students remain our top priority. While our class sites are open for registered students, we encourage those requesting assistance with enrollment, to contact us via phone or email so that we can help you virtually. We know how great the impact earning a high school diploma or improving English language skills can be on a family.  So, we're here and ready to support our new and returning students. 

Fall 2021 classes for GED ® Prep and ESOL will be offered online and limited in-person. All classes start Monday, August 2nd, 2021.  Interested students should contact the Adult Education at (850) 201-8760 or our Career Pathways Specialist at (850) 201-8043 for additional enrollment information.


Interested students can contact the Adult Education department at (850) 201-8760 or the Career Pathways Specialist at (850) 201-8043 for additional enrollment information.
